US sends FBI team to Nigeria

16 August 2016, 21:19

Abuja -  Officials from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and other security experts have been sent by the United States to help the Nigerian government fight terrorism.

The delegation, which comprised a team of the U.S Security Governance Initiative, is in the country as a follow-up to its earlier visit in January.

The Acting Deputy Chief of Mission, U.S. Embassy, Alan Tousignant, disclosed this on Monday in Abuja.

Tousignant led a security delegation on a courtesy visit to the Minister of Interior, Abdulrahman Dambazau.

The Team leader, SGI, Stephen Nolan, said both countries were working to finalise and implement a Joint Country Action Plan (JCAP) which was a document that outlined a roadmap for a successful partnership.

Nolan, however, guaranteed that the upcoming polls in the U.S and the change of government in January 2017 would not affect the project as they had been working hard to ensure its sustenance.

“I want to assure you that we have been working for the continuity and sustainability of this project, even after the Obama administration in January, 2017,’’ he said.
