For many years now, there has been constant terrorist attacks from Islamic militants throughout Nigeria, Africa. Known as Boko Haram, these militants have destroyed villages, kidnapped schoolgirls, using them as young as 7 years old for suicide bombing missions and killed thousands of innocent citizens. However, Boko Haram militants have gained international attention, and help is on the way.
With efforts to intervene in the corrupt activities practiced in Nigeria, according to CNN, the U.S. special forces and other countries have joined hands and sent their elite soldiers to Chad to train the battered people of Africa on how to defend against their new threat of terrorism.A total of 28 nations have taught the Chadians how to respond to multiple circumstances by altering their former techniques and implementing the new.
U.S. and European militaries hope that not only will their teaching ensure protection and defense against Boko Haram, but a strong coalition between the areas of the Chadian Basin. As one of the Chad elite military leaders stated, “If you have this kind of training, you can defend yourself against death”, and that is the goal of the U.S. and European countries.
