Prime Minister Boris Johnson of Britain, on Thursday, pledged his country's preparedness to lend a helping hand to the government of Nigeria in its fight against terrorism.

According to a statement issued by President Muhammadu Buhari's spokesman, Femi Adesina, PM Johnson said "We are available to help," after listening to Buhari.

The two leaders also agreed that the judicial process should be allowed to run its course after appraising the war against different forms of terrorism in Nigeria.

The resolution was reached while holding bilateral talks at the sidelines of the Global Education Summit in London.

The two leaders said it was important that the judicial process runs without interference, no matter who was involved.

Buhari had briefed the Prime Minister on Nigeria's power needs and efforts being made, as well as initiatives geared at achieving food security.

The two leaders, the statement added, equally discussed how to increase trade between the two countries, develop solar and wind power, the leadership of the Commonwealth going forward and other matters of mutual interest.
