“Nigeria has made some progress in this area in recent weeks. I strongly encourage President Buhari to keep up his efforts in the fight against terror and to take steps to deepen regional cooperation, and especially the partnership with the neighbouring countries Niger, Chad and Cameroon.
This will also be our message at the talks that we will hold with our African partners on the fringes of the G7 Summit,” said Steinmeier.

He condemned the latest attacks by the terror group.

On Tuesday, at least 13 people were killed and 24 others injured in a suicide attack on an abattoir in the northeastern city of Maiduguri, hours after Boko Haram attacked the city.

“Brutal attacks by Boko Haram in Nigeria have once again claimed many lives. I share the pain of the relatives of the victims and wish to offer them my heartfelt condolences.”
