Reuters quotes Nigeria’s Chief of Defense Intelligence, Rear Admiral Gabriel Okoi, from at Atlantic Council event on the security situation in Nigeria and Boko Haram:
Nigeria’s chief of defense intelligence, Rear Admiral Gabriel Okoi, said this week in Washington that the United States was doing “not enough” to share intelligence.
“Terrorists don’t wait to share information, so why should countries? We need to share intel as we have it,” Okoi told an Atlantic Council forum.
He said the Leahy Law, which bars the United States from providing training or equipment to foreign troops who commit human-rights violations, had also limited U.S. aid to Nigerian forces. “The U.S. is doing its best, but the Leahy law is hindering our cooperation,” Okoi said.
