BREAKING :US Marines Arrives Abuja Over Insecurity.

The US marines are in Nigeria to help the country’s
security services tackle increasing threats of the Islamic terror group, Boko Haram.
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 countries.
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. TheCable reported that a 6,000-strong
personnel, made up of soldiers and other security agents, will be deployed in Abuja – the heaviest security for a summit in Nigeria.
The US marines have already arrived the country,
according to sources in the know of their movement.
“They are not going to be directly involved in the World Economic Forum event,” a senior American security source told TheCable. “Their brief is to train the Nigerian security services and intelligence. It should be expected that Nigerian agents will handle the security of the summit.” The marines are highly specialised soldiers who have been deployed in areas affected by serious conflict and terrorism, such as Afghanistan and Iraq.
