ABUJA – President Muhammadu Buhari has said that the logistical assistance the British government offered to Nigeria has helped in flushing Boko Haram out from their hide.
The president said that in spite of “isolated attacks against soft targets,” the British assistance helped in flushing “Boko Haram out of their hide-out base and severely degraded their capacity to mount a serious attack on Nigerian assets.”
Buhari therefore appreciated the British Government “for the very effective materials and logistical support to Nigeria” in the fight against Boko Haram.
The president whose appreciation was contained in a formal letter he wrote to the British Prime Minister, Theresa May, on behalf of the people of Nigeria on Wednesday’s terrorist attack in London also expressed “my heartfelt condolences to the injured and families of the dead”.
He said the horrid incident “underscores the threat we all live under,” adding that, “terrorism has no borders and no season.”
