B’Haram took advantage of COVID to push back into Nigeria – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari says Boko Haram insurgents have taken advantage of the coronavirus pandemic to launch attacks in Nigeria.

He stated this in an article published on Tuesday in Le Point, a French weekly magazine.

On Sunday, Buhari departed Abuja for France ahead of a finance summit for African countries affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

Discussions at the summit which held on Tuesday, revolved around growing security threats in the Sahel and Lake Chad region, climate change, economic ties, political relations, and health.

In the article, Buhari said Nigeria and France have a common enemy like COVID-19, which is terrorism, adding that both countries need collaboration to effectively address the situation.

He also called for deeper cooperation between France and Nigeria in order to defeat insurgents and curb insecurity.

“Now Nigeria and France should deepen our anti-terror cooperations if we are to overcome this scourge – particularly in the aftermath of the murder of the late President of Chad. Where for historical ties, support came to Nigeria from the UK, and to the G5 from France, the terrorists do not recognise these border-aligned distinctions. We must be agile and flexible, cooperating cross our borders to cut the head off their groups,” he said.
