Britain is considering a request to sell military equipment to Nigeria to help fight Boko Haram terror group, says Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson on Thursday.
“They have put out a request for more help with materiel – equipment of one kind and another. We are going to look at that,” he said.
“We will look at that very seriously on counter-IED provision, on a request for more help with attack helicopters, for instance. Let’s have a look at what we can do,” he added, without going into further detail.
British soldiers are already training Nigerian 28,000 troops confronting the sect in the northeast, Johnson said in Lagos.
