U.S. Statement of Concern on Niger Delta Violence (June 7, 2016)
June 7, 2016
The U.S. Mission to Nigeria is monitoring reports of attacks and other incidents in the Niger Delta.  We share the concerns of all Nigerians about these attacks.  Furthermore, the United States remains supportive of efforts, including the promotion of dialogue, to address grievances in the Niger Delta.  We encourage all parties to resolve their disputes through peaceful means and emphasize that human rights of all Nigerians must be protected.

We continue to call on all Nigerians to persevere in efforts to achieve common goals: to end violence and curb the activities of criminal elements; to establish conditions and mechanisms for profound, positive, and lasting changes in the region; and to provide economic opportunity and needed services for residents of the Niger Delta.

The US has not said any word in regards to the massacre of 100s of people in Agatu, Benue and Nimbo in Enugu State by gun-parading Fulani herdsmen at different points earlier this year.
