ENUGU, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA)- The White House has confirmed the attack on the United States Embassy convoy in Anambra State.
It stated that none of its citizens was involved.
John Kirby, the National Security Council spokesperson, in a press briefing, said, “I just got informed about a whole lot before coming out here to talk to you all. It does look like a US convoy vehicle was attacked.
“What I can tell you is that no US citizens were involved, and therefore there were no US citizens hurt.
“But we are aware of some casualties, perhaps even some killed, but I don’t want to get too far ahead of where we are right now.”
Kirby added that the state department was looking into the issue.
Four staff members of the United States Embassy in Nigeria were shot dead in the Ogbaru Local Government Area of Anambra State following an attack on their vehicle on Tuesday.
“The hoodlums murdered two Police Mobile Force operatives and two Consulate staff members and set their bodies ablaze alongside their vehicles,” the Anambra State Police Command said.
