US To Help Nigeria Secure Release Of Abducted Dapchi Students
The Unites States has pledged to help Nigeria secure the over 100 school girls abducted by Boko Haram terrorists in Dapchi, Yobe State, North-East of the country.
US Secretary of State, Mr Rex Tillerson disclosed this to Journalists soon after he held a meeting with President Muhammadu Buahri on Monday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
He said: “Boko haram and ISIS West Africa have caused the displacement of millions and stolen the future from so many. The recent kidnapping of more than 100 schoolgirls is heartbreaking. Nigeria has the United States’ full support and we are actively working with our partners here on other ways we can assist you in this fight.
“The way we support is in providing capability capacity with its equipment, training of personnel for special operations and sharing certain intelligence to ensure that they have all the information available to plan and carry out the recovery effort. ”
