  • Boko Haram Insurgency; Barack Obama Reportedly Agrees To Sell Nigeria Apache Attack Helicopters
  • According to online reports, President Muhammadu Buhari has utilized his ongoing visit to Washington D.C, in securing a major concession from President Barrack Obama after the US agreed to sell Nigeria Apache Attack helicopters to facilitate the fight against Boko Haram.

    US law forbids the sale of certain arms to militaries accused of gross human rights abuses. Amnesty International had accused the Nigerian Army's leadership of complicity in the death of about 8,000 detainees in the battle against Boko Haram.

     Grant Harris of the US National Security Council, said: "We're looking forward to what we can do with a president who has staked out an agenda that we think is the right agenda at the right time." It is believed that the US has agreed to sell eight advanced Apache attack helicopters to Nigeria in a deal worth around $500m.
