Pakistan Trains 450 Nigerian Soldiers To Fight Terrorism
If you want to fight an enemy, you must learn from someone who has recorded victory in similar situations.
That is one tactic the Nigerian government wants to deploy in the fight against terrorists such as the cut-throat terror group, Boko Haram.
On Sunday, Pakistan – a country with long history of insurgency and experience in containing it - said it has trained 450 Nigerian Soldiers in counter terrorism.
This was announced in Abuja by the Charge De Affairs, Pakistan High Commission, Asim Khan, in an interview with newsmen.
Khan reiterated his country’s “readiness to continue to support Nigerian Armed Forces and security agencies in their fight against insurgency and terrorism’’.
He praised the efforts of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration in “fighting terrorism to a standstill’’, noting that various parts of the country rattled by insurgency were currently enjoining relative peace.
The envoy therefore urged the Nigerian government to “continue its good work in ensuring that Nigeria, the biggest country in Africa, is totally free of terrorist activities’’.
Khan also disclosed that the women wing of Pakistan Community in Nigeria had donated relief materials such as food and other valuable items to the various IDP camps in Nigeria.
