President Muhammadu Buhari has said that the British government’s assistance helped in flushing “Boko Haram out of their hideouts and severely degraded their capacity to mount a serious attack on Nigerian assets.
The President, in a formal letter he wrote to the British Prime Minister, Theresa May, expressed Nigeria’s appreciation “for the very effective materials and logistical support to Nigeria” in the fight against Boko Haram.
According to him, in spite of “isolated attacks against soft targets,” the British assistance contributed to a large extent in degrading the terrorist sect.
President Buhari also on behalf of the people of Nigeria express “my heartfelt condolences to the injured and families of the dead” in Wednesday’s terrorist attack in London.
He said the horrid incident “underscores the threat we all live under,” adding that, “terrorism has no borders and no season,” according to a statement by the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina.
