UK confident Boko Haram will be defeated

16 May 2016, 18:31

Abuja - United Kingdom Foreign Secretary, Philip Hammond, has expressed satisfaction with progress made in the fight against the Boko Haram terrorists.

UK is among countries supporting the West African country in eliminating the militant sect.

“Britain and Nigeria, with support from the US, France, and its neighbours, are making progress in degrading Boko Haram, but we must maintain the momentum to win the war, and build the right conditions for post-conflict stability in the region,” Hammond said at the just-ended Regional Security Summit in Abuja.

“President Buhari has shown strong leadership in the fight against Boko Haram, a brutal organisation that has raped, murdered and kidnapped innocent civilians and forced over two million people to flee their homes.

"Their allegiance to, and potential coordination with Daesh is a reminder of the threat they present to the region and to British interests.”

The UK’s continuing support to Nigeria in tackling Boko Haram with nearly £40 million of counter-terrorist and counter-extremism support over the next four years, includes the training of almost 1 000 Nigerian military personnel for deployment to the North East of Nigeria on counter-insurgency operations.
