More help needed to defeat Boko Haram, rebuild, summit told

Nigeria is seeking closer military cooperation with regional and Western powers to bring to an end nearly seven years of violence in the remote northeast which has left at least 20,000 people deadRegional and Western powers were on Saturday urged to do more to stop the threat from Boko Haram, as the UN voiced concern about the militants’ ties to the Islamic State group and threat to African security. Nigeria invited leaders of its neighbours Benin, Cameroon, Chad and Niger to Abuja, whose troops will be deployed as part of a much-delayed 8,500-member regional force to combat the Islamists. “We must sustain this fight until evil is defeated and good prevails,” he told the gathering, calling for countries affected to win the “hearts and minds of those terrorised by Boko Haram”.
