Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has set a timeline for the withdrawal of Nigerien soldiers involved in the anti-Boko Haram fight in the country’s northeast region. The president spoke in Niger Republic, where he held discussions with President Mahamadou Issoufou on how to end the insurgency. “I renew my commitment to track Boko Haram into a corner, to destroy it. Five years of the presence of this evil sect is enough. On the issue of the Niger military positioned in cities of Nigeria, I think in the next four weeks we will be able to replace them with Nigerian forces so they can return to their country. I am four days in office today and we have already started the process of ending the insurgency ,” Buhari said. He also called for cooperation of neigbour nations to combat the terrorist scourge.
