US ready to identify Boko Haram sponsors




The United States has expressed its readiness to help Nigeria to identify sponsors of terrorism in the country.

The US Ambassador to Nigeria, Mary Leonard, disclosed this on Monday during a meeting with journalists in Abuja.

The envoy was asked if the US was ready to help Nigeria identify sponsors of terrorism in Nigeria.

She, however, said talks were ongoing on the matter.
Leonard said, “That is something we are very eager to partner Nigeria on.  I have had at least three conversations in the last two months on this subject. I won’t like to go into details.”

She also allayed fear that the US partnership with Nigeria might end up like that of Afghanistan.

According to her, Nigeria has had a strong bilateral relationship with the US, saying that the situations were not the same.

The Commander, US Air Forces in Europe, General Jeffrey Harrigian, said the purchase of Tucano fighter jets was an opportunity to cement the US relationship with Nigeria as well as curbing insecurity. Punchng
