The government of Niger Republic has urged West African regional authorities to “rethink Boko Haram” and defeat the group in Nigeria. This call was made by the country’s defence minister following the killing of seven security personnel and wounding of 12 others by suspected Boko Haram militants.
The incident reportedly occurred when the suspected terrorists attacked a village in Niger while a delegation of ministers were visiting the area on Friday.
The Nigerien government also asked its former colonial power France, to strengthen military operations against the Nigeria-based Boko Haram and other militants.
According to the country’s defence minister, the thinking that Boko Haram has been reduced to making suicide attacks is a mistake, as the group has rebuilt its forces, adding in his words, “We are dealing with an army.” (Channels TV)
