Nigeria Seeks Foreign Support Against Boko Haram

 In another belated move, Nigeria has sought support from the neighbouring country of Niger in its fight against Boko Haram.

The Nigerian army as in the past also claimed that several Boko Haram members are from other countries like Chad and Niger.
