UN seeks support for Nigerian security forces, IDPs

United Nations Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres has appealed to African Union member states to channel additional resources to support Nigerian security forces and displaced victims of Boko Haram violence.

Mr Guterres’ call came at a press briefing held at the African Union headquarters in Addis Ababa.

The UN chief has been meeting with African leaders as part of the ongoing African Union Summit in the Ethiopian capital.

Several countries have offered support to Nigeria since the country started appealing for international support to ameliorate the pains inflicted by Boko Haram on civilians.
