B’Haram acquires sophisticated weapons with ease – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has told West African leaders that the ease with which terrorist groups, including Boko Haram access funds and acquire sophisticated weapons is a serious concern.

Buhari said this during the extraordinary summit of ECOWAS heads of state and government on counter-terrorism, taking place in Burkina Faso.

The president said though West African countries have made significant progress in combating terrorism, regional integration is still being threatened.

He also said Nigeria has been a “major victim of Boko Haram terrorist activities”, but that the country remains resolute in the efforts to eradicate them in all forms.

“’The frequency of attacks, the determination and resilience of the terrorist groups as well as the ease with which they raise funds and acquire sophisticated weapons are matters of serious concern which should engage our attention as a Community,” he said in a statement issued by Femi Adesina, his spokesman.

The president’s comment comes shortly after the New York Times reported how Boko Haram insurgents are upgrading their operations with improved weapons and drones, while the Nigerian military is fighting the insurgents with inefficient tactics and obsolete weapons.
