This was revealed on Wednesday by the Deputy Assistant Secretary, US Bureau of African Affairs, Michael Conzale, he disclosed that United States Government was willing to assist all of it's West African partners in quelling the spread of terriorism.
He said insecurity in Nigeria and other West African nations directly posed a risk to United States interest .
" ISIS and Al Qaeda, I would argue are quite broadly spread in Nigeria and West Africa. Insecurity in Africa directly poses a risk to United States interests " said Conzale.
He said further " It is on our interest to help partner nations to learn how to detect and deter threat".
The rate at which Boko Haram terriorists wreck havoc in this country is alarming, if Nigerian Government can allow countries like United States to assist in fighting insurgency in the country, this country will be at ease.
