Abuja — A TEAM from the United Kingdom has arrived in Abuja to support Nigerian government in its response to the abduction of more than 200 school girls in Chibok.
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) confirmed the arrival.
"A team of UK experts who will advise and support the Nigerian authorities in its response to the abduction of over 200 school girls touched down in Abuja, Nigeria this (Friday) morning," a spokesperson stated.
"The team is drawn from across Government and will work with the Nigerian authorities leading on the abductions and terrorism in Nigeria.
"The team will be considering not just the recent incidents but also longer-term counter-terrorism solutions to prevent such attacks in the future and defeat Boko Haram," the official added.
The spokesperson added, "The team will be working closely with their US counterparts and others to coordinate efforts."
The arrival of the UK team follows the international community pledging solidarity with Nigeria after the schoolgirls were abducted from a government school more than three weeks ago.
