Seek Chadians’ Assistance to Tackle Boko Haram, Nassarawa Gov Advises Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari has been urged seek the assistance of Chadian government in facing the threats of Boko Haram insurgency in North-Eastern Nigeria.
Nasawara State Governor, Abdullahi Sule, gave this advice on Channels Television Sunday night.
The governor said such an option needs to be explored to tackle Boko Haram insurgency in the zone, saying, “Many times, we have spoken about engaging external forces to assist us. We have seen how the Chadians have been very successful in handling Boko Haram. Can we engage them? Can we actually begin to engage others who can assist us so that we can handle this matter once and for all?”
Earlier, Borno State governor, Babagana Zulum, had expressed similar sentiment, asking the government of President Buhari to engage mercenaries and seek the assistance of the military of countries like Chad, Cameroon, amongst others to defeat the Boko Haram terrorists.
It would be recalled that the Chadian government dealt a deadly blow to the Boko Haram insurgents after the group attacked a Chadian town and killed scores of people earlier in the year. The Chadian army, led by the vibrant president, launched a consistent offensive on the terrorists, smoking them out of their hiding places and decimating them in no small measure.
There has not been any Boko Haram attack on the country ever since.
