US Approves $1 Billion Arms Sale To Nigeria

The US government has announced that it has approved the sale of attack aircraft and other equipment to Nigeria. The aircraft are expected to to be used against terrorists and other gunmen operating in the West African country.

According to a statement Thursday by the U.S. Defense Security Cooperation Agency, the equipment are to cost Nigeria about $997 million.

The acquisition of the aircraft and other equipment comes less than a year after the U.S. government supplied the country with 12 units of super tucano aircrafts paid for by Nigeria.

The statement said the sum to be paid by Nigeria also covers the training of personnel in handling the equipment.
