[EDITORIAL] Terrorism - Iran offers to help Nigeria fight Boko Haram

christian nwodo - Sunday, February 01, 2015

Iran has announced today that it would assist Nigeria in the fight against the Islamist group, Boko Haram, as part of its contribution for global peace. The country’s Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister, Amir Hossein Abdollohian, made the announcement while addressing the press on Saturday on the sideline of the ongoing 24th Assembly of the African Union (AU) Heads of State and Government in Addis Ababa. “Boko Haram in Nigeria and Al-Shabaab in the Horn of Africa are similar with Al-Qaeda and ISIS in parts of the Middle East using similar methods of operations to cause havoc to the people of the two regions. Iran is therefore willing to use its experience in dealing with terror groups to assist in combatting these groups in Africa,“ Mr Amin said.
