No American security operation can eradicate Boko Haram threat – Obama

U.S President Barack Obama seems to have realised the enormous threat posed by the Islamist militant group, Boko Haram, not only to Nigeria but also the world at large.

Speaking during his commencement address to the U.S. Military Academy’s graduating class at West Point on, the Kenyan born American president stated that ‘no American security operation can eradicate the threat posed by Boko Haram’.

In his words: “Tragically, no American security operation can eradicate the threat posed by an extremist group like Boko Haram, the group that kidnapped those girls, and that’s why we have to focus not just on rescuing those girls right away, but also on supporting Nigerian efforts to educate its youth.”
