Nigeria not under IS threat, says DHQ

The Defence Headquarters yesterday said Nigeria is not under threat from Islamic State militants.

It assured Nigerians that the armed forces were up to the task of defending the country and her citizens from any threat.

Defence Spokesman Brig. Gen John Agim in a statement said: “The Defence Headquarters wishes to respond to a report making the round that ISIS has been sending her members to Nigeria to train Boko Haram Terrorists (BHT) members.

“It is pertinent to state categorically that there is no concrete evidence on the ground to back their claim.

“However, it will be recalled that the Amnesty International (AI) Barnawi faction in 2016 pledged alliance to the ISIS as a result of our troops’ fire power which dislodged them from Sambisa forest and surrounding areas in the North East.

“The Armed Forces of Nigeria is aware that there is collaboration between terrorist groups, thus, it is important to note that the activity of one group in a country influences other groups in other countries and because of this knowledge, activities of other terrorist groups usually affect our own military strategy.”
