President Buhari writes a letter of appreciation to British PM.

President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed appreciation to the British government for the logistic and material support in the fight against Boko Haram.

Mr. Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, said in a statement on Friday in Abuja, Buhari described the support as “very effective’’.

Buhari said that in spite of “isolated attacks against soft targets,” the British assistance helped in flushing “Boko Haram out of their hide-out base.

The support also helped the Nigeria Army to severely degrade the capacity of the terrorists to mount a serious attack on Nigerian assets.

According to Adesina, President Buhari’s appreciation was contained in a formal letter to the British Prime Minister, Theresa May.

Buhari also expressed his condolences to the injured and families of the dead in Wednesday’s terrorist attack in London.

He said the “horrid incident underscores the threat we all live under,” adding that, “terrorism has no borders and no season.”
