Washington “deplores” the attacks in the city of Kaduna targeting a prominent cleric, Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi, and former military ruler Muhammadu Buhari. State Department deputy spokeswoman Marie Harf said the United States wants to “extend our sympathies to the loved ones” of those killed. Nigerian police said the first attack was carried out by a suicide bomber on the convoy of Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi, a cleric who has fiercely criticized Boko Haram’s deadly five-year uprising.
