US Soldiers, Egyptian Pilots ‘Storm’ Nigeria to Fight Boko Haram
According to New Telegraph, no fewer than 40 US soldiers have landed in Nigeria to assist the country in combating the dreaded Boko Haram sect which has seized some local governments in Yobe, Adamawa and Borno states.
According to the paper, plans are being made to bring in Egyptian pilots to strengthen the aerial bombardment maneuvre of the captured territories (Mubi especially.)
A source, optimistic about a soon-to-be-seen reversal of events in Northeast Nigeria, said: “I can confirm to you that about 40 US military personnel, all in combat gear, have arrived in the country. In fact, they arrived at the DHQ today (yesterday), and I’m sure they met with the military high command, for briefing and other necessary operational issues.”
