Nigeria needs the same support as France on terror​ – Kaigama

The Catholic Archbishop of Jos, Ignatius Kaigama, has called for the same international support to tackle Boko Haram as France has received since it was hit by a terrorist attack last week.

“I see the very positive response towards the French government in tackling this issue of religious violence after the killing of their citizens.

“We need that spirit to be spread around, not just when it happens in Europe, (but) when it happens in Nigeria, in Niger, Cameroon and many poor countries, that we mobilize our international resources to confront the people who bring such sadness to many families,” he told BBC World Service radio.

Kaigama was speaking in lieu of the terrorist attack involving three female suicide bombers, including one thought to be as young as 10, who killed at least 23 people in the northeast.
