NIGERIA DISAGREES WITH UK ON THE COMPETENCE OF THE NIGERIAN ARMY
In a veiled criticism of the Nigerian military, the UK foreign secretary, William Hague said on Saturday, that the Nigerian security forces have not been well structured to counter the growing terrorist activities in the country. ‘Nigerian forces have not been structured for this kind of thing. This has been shown by the fact that the problem has been getting worse with Boko Haram’, he said, during an interview before the commencement of the meetings.‘It is very important that they uphold high standard of human rights and be well co-ordinated in their own activities’, Mr Hague added. He however reinstated UK’s commitment to support the country in her fight against terrorism. He said the UK is offering to embed her military advisers with their Nigerian counterparts.
