Press Release

LOS ANGELES – Congresswoman Maxine Waters (CA-43), Ranking Member of the Committee on Financial Services, released the following statement on recent terrorist attacks in Nigeria.

Congresswoman Waters’ statement follows:

“My heart goes out to the people of Nigeria after the recent malicious terrorist attacks that killed and injured many innocent people.  These heinous attacks, once again, remind us of just how determined these extremist groups are to create fear, divisiveness and panic around the world.

“While there was not significant attention given to the attacks in Nigeria, we will not allow this type of brutality and violence to prevent us from working as part of an international coalition to develop solutions to fight terrorism and to make the world a safer and more tolerant community of nations.

“I will keep the victims and their families in my prayers as they continue to deal with the aftermath of these terrible tragedies.”
