Jonathan gives a strong warning to boko haram, Speaking in Windhoek, Namibia during bilateral talks with President Hifikepunye Pohamba at the Conference Hall of the Namibia State House, President Jonathan solicited the support of other countries in the fight against terrorism, saying a terror attack on one country is an attack on all countries.
He said: “The issue of global terror is worrisome and in Nigeria, we believe that a terror attack anywhere in the world is a terror attack on everyone.
“It may be more in one country compared to the other. For instance, in the North Eastern part of Nigeria, we are having incidence of terror in three states out of 36 states.
“Initially, we handled it with kid gloves but now we have decided to be a little more forceful because we must thrash out these terror groups. We must not allow them to continue to slow down economic growth in that part of the country.
“With the terror attacks in that part of the country, the rest of the country feel it because Nigerians live everywhere. In these other parts, there is always the fear that if you do not tackle it, it will spread to other parts. We will work together to ensure that terror attack is stamped out globally and in Nigeria we are committed.”
