(Abuja, 18 December 2017): The UN Humanitarian Coordinator in Nigeria, Mr. Edward Kallon, strongly deplores the deadly ambush on a convoy carrying humanitarian food supplies for conflict-affected persons on Saturday 16 December, and expressed grave concern over the limitations that attacks of this nature may have on the delivery of life-saving supplies to people in need in north-east Nigeria.
