Leaving trouble in one’s house and trying to help resolve trouble in another man’s house is not commonsense. This is the case in our nation today where the terrorist group Boko Haram has carried out repeated senseless attacks and murder of innocent citizens of Nigeria.
Nigeria’s participation in peacekeeping operations in Africa dates back as 1961.
The Coordinator National Information Centre (NIC), Mr. Mike Omeri has stated the possibility of recalling soldiers who are involved in Peacekeeping Mission abroad to join in the fight against Boko Haram.
He disclosed this during a press briefing on security issues in Nigeria, yesterday.
“There is need for a troops surge in operational areas which may require recalling Nigerian troops from peace keeping missions abroad to enhance the operational capabilities of the Nigerian military,” he said.
