Nigeria thanks US for sale of aircraft

The US $593m (£460m) sale of 12 Super Tucano aircraft to Nigeria has gone ahead, the Reuters news agency reports saying that the Pentagon has let Congress know.

Nigeria wants the aircraft, which can be used for surveillance and attack, to help in the fight against Islamist militant group Boko Haram.

Nigeria’s vice-president has tweeted about the deal:

Both countries are working on a prompt repatriation of the funds.

We are thankful to the US Govt. for its decision to sell Super Tucano aircrafts to Nigeria to aid its fight against insurgency in the NE.
