The European Union (EU) Commissioner for Crisis Management, Janez Lenarcic, has advised President Muhammadu Buhari to apply international law and international humanitarian law in fighting deadly terrorist group, Boko Haram.
Janez believes military effort alone would not be enough in battling Boko Haram in Nigeria.
According to him, his organization is ready to support Buhari’s efforts because unity is key in times like this.
He added that he believes in the President’s effort to eradicate the terrible terrorist group.
His words, “We would like to support your efforts. We believe all relevant actors; military, civilian as well as humanitarian should come together. The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs is suggesting such high level dialogue.
“In situations such as what we have in the northeast, international law and international humanitarian law should apply. We believe in your efforts to end the conflict; military effort alone probably will not be sufficient without identifying and addressing the socio-economic factors causing it.”
