U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, released the following statement after Boko Haram attacked a Nigerian village killing over 80 people.

“The world’s fight against violent jihad must continue. The savage massacre of over 80 innocent Nigerians — including children and women — by Boko Haram is pure evil. The United States and our allies should destroy these bloodthirsty killers."
