WASHINGTON, D.C. — Congressman G. K. Butterfield, Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, issued the following statement strongly condemning acts of terrorism in France and Nigeria:

“For the second time in a week, the global community has been rocked to learn of another heinous act of terrorism.  The Congressional Black Caucus joins the millions of people around the world in both shock and mourning for the brutal murders that took place in France, and now the massacre of up to 2,000 innocent people by Boko Haram in Nigeria.

“Although the details of this tragedy are still unfolding, what we know with certainty is that Boko Haram will not end its crusade of destruction unless it is met with force.  The government of Nigeria must act to protect its citizens from this ultra-extreme and violent group.

“Terrorism must cease once and for all.  The CBC calls on the global community to unite to take real action against all acts of terrorism, including the barbaric group known as Boko Haram.”
