US military to conduct missions against Boko Haram inside Nigeria

The U.S. military will carry out surveillance and intelligence missions against Boko Haram inside Nigeria as part of its deployment to West Africa, sources familiar with the plan told AFP on Friday, October 17. The counter operations will be carried out as part of the recently announced deployment of up to 300 US military personnel to neighboring Cameroon, officials said.

"This is going to be part of our Boko Haram efforts that will be operating throughout the region," one of the sources apparently said on condition of anonymity.

It will not include boots on the ground or offensive combat, but will see US military operations against Boko Haram in Africa's most populous country for the first time. "It's surveillance and intelligence gathering, not anything offensive," added the same source.

US President Barack Obama on Wednesday announced he would send up to 300 military personnel to Cameroon. Approximately 145 have already arrived in the country. According to Pentagon officials, the US Department of Defence also has approximately 250 personnel in Niger and 85 in Chad conducting training and surveillance missions.

Why do we keep announcing our strategies to fight the boko boys? That's not wise, or is it a way of reducing the fear the public is going tru? Sounds political to me. I feel it will be best to plan and carry out the plan. Announce the success of it not the intentions mbok.

The same govt that stopped this country from acquiring arms to persecute the war against boko haram thereby allowing them to operate with impunity.,is now offering you help, question is what does the USA really want.

Usa will only help Boko Haram and make them stronger. Usa made isis stronger. Usa will hurt nigeria. Look at usa in Syria they hit the syrian army and supported is is. Usa will launch attacks against the nigerian army and media will cover it.

Anonymous said...

what is their agenda? Illiterate like buhari has most likely sold them our oil supply for the next 15 years

Anonymous said...

In as much as I want BH to be eradicated from the shore of Nigeria and Africa as a whole, the same APC critics attacked Jona for trying to use International help to fight them but now they are bringing US soldiers to our shore. I hope they cover their faces in shame...lol

it is time for some drone bombings, Nigeria should get ready for action.

kevin kome said...

USA the question is what do they really want USA are one of the most dangerous and corrupt country in the world any country the go to to help always end up in chaos Libya example and the world has not come to realise, its only country with black gold they go to Please buhari dont let them in our country

Tefe said...

they refused to sell arms to the last administration because they wanted to assist the APC in discrediting the government of Jonathan, they wanted to make sure that the Jonathan administration never succeeded in the fight against boko haram because they wanted buhari to campaign on that aspect.the USA is no friend of anybody.

This Life said...

Where has the US succeeded in ending insurgency? Iraq? Libya? Afghanistan? Syria? A helper with no track record can only help a country like Nigeria. They are setting up Nigeria for its final destruction but who cares when all our so called leaders want is power no matter the price.

Gentle C said...

Hmmm... Can America ever help a nation without getting something in return? Only God knows what our President has agreed to give them in return. I pray this battle ends quickly. Wonder how many earth bound souls are wandering around Sambisa. Too many lives taken. God save Nigeria.

Its a welcome development, thanks to Obama but i hope they would demand for something at the end of the day? *just thinking aloud*

Google is your friend. If you think your oil matter, check out Shales and new development in America. Awon tribalist attributing the glory to Obama as if that's how government of a nation works without a go-ahead from Naija presido and agreement signed. Shameless Biafra idiots. You guys should leave Naija already.

This life you took the words out of my mouth. USA is the the of any country that offers up its sovereignty to them as a burnt offering. We should not forget that the US government has always being interested in gaining access into the Nigerian government in the name of having a military base in West Africa. Now I believe their prayers have been answered. They've already accused the Nigerian soldiers of war crimes soon they will turn on them accusing the government of killing innocent Nigerian with its soldiers. Dissolving the present government and conducting a new election for us. My fellow Nigerians that is the way the US government operates when they gain access into country.
