US President Barack Obama accused of politicizing fight against Boko Haram

Nigeria has accused the United States government for politicizing the fight against Boko Haram militant group.

Nigeria’s Ambassador to Atlanta Georgia and its environs, Geoffrey Teneilabe, blamed the US government for not assisting Nigeria in its fight against the insurgents.

Earlier analysts’ summaries had expressed surprise at the US decision to deploy troops to Nigeria’s neighbor when Abuja had not received significant US military aid from the Western power.

Geoffrey Teneilabe said that America began playing politics with the fight against Boko Haram from the time it refused to sell arms that the Nigerian troop would have used to totally curb the Islamic Sect.
