Ter­ror­ism: Buhari tasks world lead­ers on in­tel­li­gence shar­ing

Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Isi­aka Wak­ili

Pres­i­dent Muhammadu Buhari has urged world lead­ers to strengthen re­la­tion­ships across bor­ders and be more forth­right in in­tel­li­gence shar­ing to curb the grow­ing so­phis­ti­ca­tion in global ter­ror­ism.

Pres­i­den­tial spokesman Femi Adesina, in a state­ment, said Buhari made the call at the Pres­i­den­tial Villa in Abuja yes­ter­day, while re­ceiv­ing the Egyp­tian Am­bas­sador to Nige­ria, Mr Aseem Muhammed Hanafi El­seify, dur­ing a Let­ter of Cre­dence pre­sen­ta­tion cer­e­mony.

Buhari said the re­cent at­tacks in some de­vel­oped coun­tries, like the United King­dom, clearly showed a need for stronger global col­lab­o­ra­tion and re­view of se­cu­rity ar­chi­tec­tures across coun­tries.

He noted that the Boko Haram at­tacks within West African coun­tries and across the bor­ders were brought un­der con­trol after con­certed efforts by lead­ers to en­sure joint op­er­a­tions.

“Clearly the threat of global ter­ror­ism is get­ting more so­phis­ti­cated by the day. So, we need lead­ers to work to­gether to stop the at­tacks,’’ he said. Buhari was also re­ceived Let­ters of Cre­dence from Mrs Mar­celline Paulette Ad­jovi Yekpe, Am­bas­sador of Benin Repub­lic to Nige­ria and Mr Ale­jan­dro Gar­cia Moreno-El­izando, Am­bas­sador of Mex­ico to Nige­ria.
