Boko Haram: Nigerian FG Tells US To Stop Training Anti Terror Soldiers

December 1st, 2014 – Boko Haram: Nigerian FG Cancels US Agreement To Build Anti Terrorism Battalion

The frosty relationship between Nigeria and the United States worsened on Monday with Nigeria cancelling a training of an Army Battalion by American security officials.

‎”At the request of the Nigerian government, the United States will discontinue its training of a Nigerian Army battalion,” the US Embassy in Abuja said in a statement.

The first two phases of training were conducted between April and August 2014, and had provided previously untrained civilian personnel with basic soldiering skills.

“Based on mutual assessment of the Nigerian Army and US trainers, a third iteration of training was agreed upon with the intent of developing the battalion into a unit with advanced infantry skills.

“We regret premature termination of this training, as it was to be the first in a larger planned project that would have trained additional units with the goal of helping the Nigerian Army build capacity to counter Boko Haram,” America said.

The US government said it will continue other aspects of the extensive bilateral security relationship, as well as all other assistance programmes with Nigeria.

    I DON’T SEE THE REASON WHY US Soldier should be stopped to perform their duty, after all it is aimed at Boko Haram s’ evil tactics.

    They should not had allowed them in the first place. All they know is loud stupid commentaries, if Nigeria could stop Biafra, Liberian nonsense and lunacy in Sierra Leone with our troops then boko haram should not be a problem. The main problem is the commitment of mr. President: He is simply not serious about it. General Gowon and maximum General( Abacha) always requested for arms from Eastern European countries, they avoided nasty business of carrying banana “come dey follow monkey” ke!
