The Nigerian government has said it will soon put an end to terrorist attacks in the north of the country.

Malam Garba Shehu, Presidential Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media, told the BBC that stakeholders at home and abroad would be working together to address the security crisis.

The 60th CEDEAO, or ECOWAS Summit, kicks off in Abuja on Sunday.

The meeting comes at a time when many West African countries are in a state of extreme insecurity, with attacks by insurgent groups and other militants.

More than 20 travelers have been set on fire in recent days in northern Nigeria’s Sokoto State, and some travelers on their way to shopping in central Mali have been set on fire by gunmen.

The incident has further sparked public outrage and sparked controversy, with national authorities being accused of failing.

According to Malam Garba Shehu, the conference came at the right time, noting the complex challenges facing ECOWAS in various countries.

“It is a summit in front of us. Everyone knows the state of democracy in Mali and Guinea. Here is the issue of insecurity. For ECOWAS to understand that cross-border rebels are crossing the borders of neighboring countries, there is no “A country that is going to isolate itself is fighting this war.” We must come together and fight together, ” said Garba Shehu.

On the escalation of attacks and kidnappings in Northern Nigeria, Malam Garba Shehu said, and representatives at the local and state levels have reported back to him, and it remains to be seen what will happen next.

He also said that, at the international level, the ECOWAS or CEDEAO summit would contribute to ending the insurgency in northern Nigeria.

“This is one of the issues that the leaders are going to discuss. “Take immediate action to end the insurgency in northern Nigeria permanently,” said Garba Shehu.

Earlier this week, Beacon Consultants released a report claiming that more than 400 people had been killed by militants in November in northern Nigeria.

Apart from the report, he said kidnappings had increased in the region by almost 40 percent, although he said measures to curb the attacks were working in other parts of the country.
