US outlines six ways for Nigeria to defeat Boko Haram

13 October 2016, 08:54

Niger Delta - US government experts have highlighted in a report named 'Country reports on terrorism 2015' six ways that the Nigerian government can effectively eradicate its Boko Haram threat, Naij reports.

The US Bureau of counter-terrorism and countering violent extremism released the report for governments to effectively fight against any terror threat that might be faced.

The six ways highlighted were:

Enabling and enhancing capacity militaries: which would strengthen West and North African military forces to fight against terror organisations.

Integrating: integrating various militaries and law enforcement to work in a collaborative manner to better fight against terror threats.

Enhancing border security: which would monitor terror movements and prevent border crossing resulting in terror groups mobilizing.

The rule of law: strengthening the rule of law would enable law enforcement agencies to effectively investigate and prosecute terrorist activity.

Monitoring: which helps agencies keep track of terror groups and countering the financing of terrorism.

Reducing support: reducing the amount of support and sympathy among communities for violent extremism.

News24 reported that the Nigerian Army arrested what it believes is Boko Haram members who allegedly participated in terror attacks and cattle rustling.

The Army also confirmed that it had recovered stolen cattle that would be handed over to the cattle market committee that will look to return them to their rightful owners.

This follows a wave of arrests made by the army, who have arrested several Boko Haram members and terrorists in recent weeks, while also releasing images of the detained members.
