FINALLY!! American Soldiers Arrives Nigeria To Flush Out Boko Haram.

Following the approval of
President Barack Obama for
the deployment of US Marines
to the troubled Nigeria for the
search and rescue of over 200
school girls kidnapped by the
dreaded Boko Haram sect, the
troops are in Nigeria to help
the country’s security services
tackle increasing threats.
They are described in
Wikipedia as “an amphibious,
expeditionary, air-ground
combined arms task force,
capable of forcible entry from
the air, land, and sea.
It is capable of asymmetric
warfare with conventional,
irregular, and hybrid forces.
While the Marine Corps does
not employ any unique
combat arms, as a force it can
rapidly deploy a combined-
arms task force to almost
anywhere in the world within

Nigeria is playing host to the
7th World Economic Forum
Africa in Abuja amid
heightened security challenges.

The summit is expected to be
attended by over 10 heads of
state and government as well
as over 900 delegates from 70

Presidents of Algeria, Benin,
Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana,Kenya,
Liberia, Mali Nigeria, Rwanda,
Senegal,Tanzania and Togo
have confirmed attendance.
Former British Prime Minister,
Gordon Brown, and former
President of Brazil, Lula da
Silva, are expected to attend.

Also, over 50 chief executives
of big global corporations have confirmed attendance.

However,because of recent
blasts in Nyanya – on the
outskirts of Abuja – there have
been heightened fears of a
possible terror attack during
the summit.

Nigerian government has been
assuring the world that it
would provide maximum
security, announcing
a complete shut-down of
schools and government
offices during the summit.
6,000-strong Nigerian security
operatives, m*de up of soldiers
and other security agents, have
been deployed in Abuja – the
heaviest security for a summit
in Nigeria.
For now, the US marines will
first train Nigerians soldiers.

The marines are highly
specialised soldiers who have
been deployed in areas
affected by serious conflict and terrorism, such as Afghanistan
and Iraq.
