The Royal British Army has expressed its readiness to assist the Nigerian military in training support and capacity building in the effort to bring an end to Boko Haram insurgency in the country’s North East.

The Defence Adviser to the United Kingdom in Nigeria, Brigadier General Charles Calder, who assumed duty recently made this known on Friday when he paid a courtesy call on the Acting General Officer Commanding (GOC) 7 Division Nigerian Army, Maiduguri, Brigadier General Victor Ezugwu.

General Calder said that the UK Government will significantly expand its training assistance to all Nigerian Army training institutions.

In his response, General Ezugwu commended the UK Government for previous supports and training given by the British Military Assistance Training Team (BMATT) geared towards capacity building and development of personnel of the Division.
