Terrorism: We’ll stand by Nigeria to defeat Boko Haram, UK assures

The United Kingdom will continue to stand by Nigeria to defeat the Boko Haram terrorist group, the British Armed Forces Minister, Mark Lancaster, has said.

Lancaster gave the assurance after visiting many military formations in the Northeast, where the UK military experts are providing specialised training for the Nigerian military in the counter insurgency campaign.

Lancaster said: “The UK stands united with Nigeria in the international fight against terror. With our world class military expertise, we are helping the Nigerian military develop the skills necessary to tackle the threat of Boko Haram.

“From expert operational guidance and medical mentoring in the North East, to counter explosive device training across the country, the UK is leading the way in its commitment to supporting a safe and stable Nigeria.”

The minister also met with those delivering expert training to the Nigerian Armed Forces through the resident British Military Advisory and Training Team (BMATT), and the UK personnel in the Liaison and Support Team (LST) based in the North East of the country. The LST provides non-lethal operational advice and guidance to the Nigerian Armed Forces as they tackle the terror threat of Boko Haram.
