7 year after Boko Haram attack UN considers reopening its Abuja office

The United Nations is gradually moving back to its headquarters in the Nigerian capital, Abuja, seven years after it was attacked by Boko Haram insurgents.

The UN resident coordinator, Edward Kallon, disclosed this at the celebration of the 73rd United Nations Day on Wednesday (October 24th) in Abuja.

The building, which was built by the Nigerian Government, was on Friday, 26 of August 2011, bombed by members of Islamic terror group, Boko Haram, with a car bomb destroying the lower floors of the building.

The vehicle broke through two security barriers, probably indicating that it was reinforced to withstand the impact. Then its driver detonated the bomb after crashing it into the UN reception area.
