Leader McCarthy Statement on the Boko Haram Massacre

Washington, D.C. – House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on Boko Haram’s massacre in Maiduguri:

“I am horrified by yet another senseless massacre at the hands of Boko Haram. The sickening nature of these murders underscores the lack of humanity shown by this radical Islamist group. With at least 86 reportedly killed in the most gruesome fashion, claims that Boko Haram has been severely weakened seem to have been premature. The United States, the International community, and especially neighboring African countries must step up their efforts to combat this evil.”
