Catholic Archbishop of Jos queries America’s help in fight against Boko Hara

The Catholic Archbishop of Jos, Ignatius Kaigama has queried the quality of help America is said to be giving to Nigeria towards the fight against Boko Haram. In an interview with BBC Africa, Bishop Kaigama wondered why Boko Haram attacks is still on the increase despite the reported help America is offering Nigeria

“The question is if the US has been providing help, intelligence and assisting in one way or the other, why the growing destruction? Why is the activities of Boko Haram becoming so sophisticated? So I wonder the quality of help. How effective is that help? How can it bring this situation to a halt? We (Nigeria) certainly need help to overcome this terrorist group because they seem to be expanding and growing more sophisticated in their approach and they are claiming lives and displacing so many Nigerians.”
He called on the international community to show genuine concern to issues of terrorism on other parts of the world and not just Europe..

“Let us act together. It is important to feel concern when one part of the world is in trouble. Whether it is in the middle east, Whether is in the sub saharan africa. whether it is in Europe or America. I think we should be genuinely concerned for one another and do what we can like I see the very positive response of the french government in tackling the issue of religious violence after the killings of their citizens. There have been very very positive and putting in all they can in order to ensure this does not happen again. We need that spirit to be spread around. Not just when it happens in Europe but when it happens in Nigeria, in Niger, in Cameroon, in any poor country, that we mobilize our international resources and confront the people who bring such sadness to many families”he said
