The Chinese government has shown concern over rising insecurity challenges in Nigeria, approved to send special criminal investigators to help Nigeria apprehend bandits and Boko Haram.
Addressing journalists on the sideline of the October 1, China-Nigeria friendship award to students of the Ahmadu Bello University Zaria, on wednesday, Chinese Ambassador to Nigeria, Cui Jianchun, noted the move is to join forces with Nigeria to tackle looming insecurity.
He said: “So now the (Chinese) central government made the decision to send a high-level delegation from the criminal investigation experts with real experience. They come to Nigeria and get to talk to the people, the government, how can they find a way to work together to overcome the challenge they are facing.
“China’s central government is really concerned about the security situation in Nigeria and also the Chinese nationals in Nigeria. We are working hard on how we can get support from China. I think that it really concerns every Nigerian, and I believe this is not only about the Nigerian people and government, but also, we need international support.”
