Abuja: US experts from the College of International Security Affairs, National Defence University, Washington, trained Nigerian military officers at the National Defence College (NDC), Abuja, on the need to “develop a strategic mechanism” to tackle the Boko Haram insurgency. The five-day training was for the NDC’s faculty members and focused on combating terrorism and irregular threats in Nigeria. The spokesperson of the college, Commander Edward Yeibo, said the training was about knowledge sharing on irregular threats in the contemporary security environment as well as a strategic framework on the Boko Haram insurgency.

The leader of the US team of experts, Ambassador Erica Ruggles, while meeting the NDC Commandant, Rear Admiral Adeniyi Osinowo, said, “Our mission is to educate and prepare senior civilian and military security professionals and future leaders of the United States and partners for the strategic challenges of the contemporary security environment.”
