US Pres. Donald Trump finally endorsed Sale Of Military aircrafts To Nigeria to fight against terrorists

The White House has given the thumbs up for the offer of military aircrafts to Nigeria to help in the battle
against Boko Haram, the AP news office is detailing.

President Donald Trump revealed to President Muhammadu Buhari in a telephone discussion in February that he upheld the arrangement.The deal, said to be worth up to $600m (£490m), was agreed by the Obama administration, but was reportedly halted on the day it was due to be sent to Congress, after a catastrophic incident involving the Nigerian military.

About 90 people, mainly women and children, were killed in January when the Nigerian Air Force mistakenly bombed a camp in the north-east, which was hosting thousands of those who had fled Boko Haram. AFP now says President Trump had approved sales.
