France on Wednesday offered to send security service agents to Nigeria to help recover more than 200 schoolgirls kidnapped by Islamist militant group Boko Haram last month, informed its Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius.
With more than 4,000 troops operating between Mali to the west and Central African Republic to the east, Paris has a major interest in preventing Nigeria’s security situation from deteriorating.
“The President has instructed … to put the (intelligence) services at the disposal of Nigeria and neighbouring countries,” Fabius told lawmakers.
Adding that such crime cannot be left unpunished, Fabius said, “This morning he asked us to contact the Nigerian president to tell him that a specialised unit with all the means we have in the region was at the disposal of Nigeria to help find and recover these young girls,” said Fabius.
Boko Haram has threatened to sell the kidnapped girls into slavery.
