- The US government has sent a message to Nigeria on its resolve to crush ISIS
- The message was sent on Thursday, November 12, by the secretary of state, Mike Pompeo
- Pompeo said that the international community will use all necessary tools to defeat the terrorist group
The United States (US) has reiterated its resolve to subdue and overcome the activities of the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) in all parts of the world the terrorist group is found including Nigeria.
This was contained in the affirmation given on Thursday, November 12, by the US secretary of state, Mike Pompeo.
Pompeo put forward the assurance during a virtual meeting on the anti-terrorism battle held on Wednesday, November 11.
The prominent American official, who represented President Donald Trump in the meeting said that the international community alongside the US will do everything in its power to flush out ISIS in the world.
"Great progress was made at yesterday’s virtual Global @Coalition to Defeat ISIS meeting on West Africa.
"We will use all tools at our disposal to counter ISIS and its affiliates anywhere in the world..."
This is the first message the US government is sending to Nigeria after the recent presidential election in which Joe Biden is the projected winner.
Earlier, Nigerians on Twitter reacted to the viral claim that militants of ISIS and Al-Qaeda were planning to attack southern and northern parts of the country.
In fact, some unverified sources claim that the US had alerted the federal government of this grand plot by the terrorists.
The reactions were mixed; while some were indifferent over the news, a section of some media subscribers felt that caution should be taken by the government to thwart the plan.
Another group of Nigerians believed that this was nothing new since they believe the Boko Haram insurgents already terrorising the country were off-shoots of the ISIS itself.
