Nigerian prelate says news strategy to counter Boko Haram is overdue

Catholic World News - March 21, 2014

A Nigerian archbishop has welcomed his government’s new strategy for countering the Boko Haram terrorist group, while saying that the change in approach is overdue.

Archbishop Ignatius Ayau Kaigama of Jos told the Fides news agency that the Nigerian government has decided that military action against Boko Haram should be accompanied by economic and social programs to benefit the communities in which the terrorists are active. The archbishop said that “this approach should have been adopted a long time ago, when it was easier to find the path of dialogue.”

Expressing the hope that aid to the distressed communities will not come too late, Archbishop Kaigama said: “We are tired of theories; we want concrete results.”
