Just as Nicki Minaj and Solange Knowles, Hollywood star Angelina Jolie has also condemned the recent killing of over 2000 people in Baga, a community in Borno State, Nigeria by the fierce group Boko Haram.

In a statement, the UN Ambassador and actress stressed the need for the government to cripple the group's activities and says the group gets worse at every new attack

'Each new crime committed by Boko Haram exceeds the last in brutality. This is a direct consequence of the environment of total impunity in which Boko Haram operates. Every time they get away with mass murder, rape and the enslavement of women and children, they are emboldened,' Ms. Jolie said.

Meanwhile, Executive Director United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), Anthony Lake, has also condemned the brutal killings saying that words cannot express the agency’s outrage nor agony of resident of the constant violent attack.

'Young girls sent to die with a bomb strapped to their chests in Maiduguri. And lest we forget, more than two hundred girls stolen from their families, still lost,' Mr. Lake said.

He also called for both quick and effective action by the government to fight the terrorist group.

We earlier reported that over 2000 people were allegedly slaughtered in Baga community by the Boko Haram including women, children and the aged.

In a statement by the Defense spokesperson, Chris Olukolade, he claimed the numbers were fabricated calling it "an exaggerated estimate".

He added that not up to 150 people lost their lives due to the attack.
