Buhari thanks Britain for logistics to degrade Boko Haram

President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed appreciation to the British Government “for the very effective materials and logistical support to Nigeria” in the fight against Boko Haram.

According to the President, in spite of “isolated attacks against soft targets,” the British assistance helped in flushing “Boko Haram out of their hideout base and severely degraded their capacity to mount a serious attack on Nigerian assets.”

Buhari’s appreciation was contained in a formal letter he wrote to the British Prime Minister, Theresa May, on behalf of the people of Nigeria to express “my heartfelt condolences to the injured and families of the dead” in Wednesday’s terrorist attack in London.

According to a statement yesterday by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, Buhari said the horrid incident “underscores the threat we all live under,” adding: “Terrorism has no borders and no season.”
