US forces’ operation ‘not a violation of Nigerian sovereignty- minister

by Kunle Awosiyan

The Minister of Defence, Major General Bashir Magashi (rtd.), has said the recent rescue operation by the United States special forces on Nigerian soil was not a violation of the country’s sovereignty.

He said the Nigerian government granted the US necessary permission to carry out the military operation.

The minister said Nigeria gave permission to the United States “as a friendly country” almost as soon as it was contacted by the government.
