Nigeria stands with Niger Republic, says Buhari, as Boko Haram/ISWAP terrorists kill 137 Nigeriens

President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday said Nigeria will continue to stand with all her neighbours in the fight against Boko Haram/Islamic State in West African Province (ISWAP) terrorism.

President Buhari spoke in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, over the recent killing of 137 Nigeriens by Boko Haram/ISWAP terrorists, condemning it while describing it as heinous.

The statement said that President Buhari called his Nigerien counterpart, Mahamadou Issoufou, on phone, to sympathize with him and citizens of the neighbouring country over terrorist attacks.

“Our deepest and heartfelt condolences to the families of victims and people of Niger Republic. Nigeria stands with all her neighbours in the fight against terrorism,” he said.

Shehu revealed that Buhari and Issoufou had agreed to strengthen sub-regional security as a way to push back against Boko Haram/ISWAP’s worrisome assertiveness in sub- Sahara and Sahel regions.
