It has been disclosed that Israel has been one of Nigeria‘s allies in the fight against the dreaded Boko Haram terrorist group. The Chief Coordinating Spokesman of the National Information Centre, Abuja, Mike Omeri made this known while speaking with press men about the state of the nation.
Mr. Omeri said “Israel has been a crucial and loyal ally in our fight against Boko Haram. It is a sad reality that Israel has a great deal of experience confronting terrorism. Our Israeli partners have used that experience, and the unique expertise gained over years of fighting terror within its own borders, to assist us”
The Boko Haram group has been terrorising North Eastern Nigeria for over a year now, killing thousands of people and displacing tens of thousands. The most publicised mishap of the group so far has been the abduction of over 200 school girls in Chibok, North Eastern Nigeria.
