End of Boko Haram? Donald Trump approves sale of military planes to Nigeria

The US President, Donald Trump has given the go-ahead for the sale of military planes to Nigeria to aid in the fight against Islamist militant group Boko Haram.


President Donald Trump told Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari in a phone conversation in February that he backed the deal.

The deal, said to be worth up to $600m (£490m), was agreed by the Obama administration, but was reportedly halted on the day it was due to be sent to Congress, after a catastrophic incident involving the Nigerian military.
