In order to end terrorism in the country, the minister of defence, Mohammed Badaru, has sought more support from the UK and United States.
Badaru said that Western countries need to give more support to Nigeria, as it has given to other nations, to enable it to confront its present security challenges.
The minister said this on Thursday in Abuja when he received the United Kingdom (UK) minister for Armed Forces and Veterans, James Heappey, in his office.
He said the UK government has supported Nigeria in ensuring the safety of its waterways, adding that both countries must work together to also bring an end to terrorism in the country.
Badaru said Nigeria and the United Kingdom have had a good bilateral relationship for decades, stressing that both countries must work closely in areas of capacity building, training of military personnel, technology transfer as well and provision of modern equipment to fight terrorism.
In his remarks, the UK Minister for Armed Forces and Veterans, said the purpose of their visit was to adjust and expand their support to the Armed Forces of Nigeria based on the needs and perception of the changing threats.Follow us on social media
