POLITICS: Buhari Accuses America of Supporting Boko Haram by Denying Nigeria Arms

President Buhari says that the US is 'aiding and abetting' terror group Boko Haram by refusing to supply arms to Nigeria. A US law called the Leahy Law prevents the US government from selling arms to countries which fail to tackle human rights abuses. President Buhari made the accusation while addressing members of the US Institute of Peace yesterday July 22nd "In our efforts at combating the activities of Boko Haram, the new Government has sought and obtained the support of not only our neighbours other international friends and partners. Regrettably, the blanket application of the Leahy Law by the United States on the grounds of unproven allegations of human rights violations levelled against our forces has denied us access to appropriate strategic weapons to prosecute the war against the insurgents. 

Our forces have remained largely impotent because they do not possess the appropriate weapons and technology which they could have had, had the so-called human rights violations not been an obstacle. Unwittingly, and I dare say, unintentionally, the application of the Leahy Law amendment by the U. S. Government has aided and abetted the Boko Haram terrorist group in the prosecution of its extremist ideology and hate, the indiscriminate killings and maiming of civilians, in raping of women and girls, and in their other heinous crimes.”he said

he went with a whole clan to the US.. leaving the menacing boko haram to the hapless people of North East. He was able to borrow billions of dollars to re build the subregion without talking about the insurgency. Now he thinks America would bate an eye if Nigeria refuses the gay marriage clause. It wont be long he would see what Jonathan saw. They were yabbing Jonathan of using arms inferior to what Boko Haram had.... wetin come dey happen now?

@enyinda: you have a huge point. it baffled me to hear them discussing rebuilding NorthEast. i sometimes imagine if they are sane. how can world bank finance Nigeria to rebuild North East when they've not stop the insurgency> isn't it futile and waste of money if the insurgents keep destroying the place. Let FG stamp out insurgency before talking about rebuilding the affected areas

Actually rebuilding is something that is sane somewhat. Israel do this every time when there's a bomb in their country. They don't let that get in the way, they rebuild that place like nothing happened. Terrorism is a fear game. If you put that fear into people and win then there's a problem.

@JESSE: if they rebuild or not, the fear of "It May Happen Again" is already there. For instance; someone like me can't reside or set up an office at WESTGATE SHOPPING MALL Kenya that was attacked and rebuilt. I still fear that shopping mall despite all the media hype it's getting as it has been re-opened for business. Don't think i'm always afraid, No. Iam just being careful. I really love the fact that i live in a peaceful area of Lagos.
