The US has handed over 24 armoured vehicles worth $11m (£7.5m) to Nigeria’s military in Lagos today. “These vehicles provide increased protection from improvised explosive devices, roadside bombs, and small
arms fire, while offering more maneuverability and better fuel economy than other types of armored personnel carriers,” US defence attache to Nigeria Colonel Patrick Doyle said in a statement.

The US mission to Nigeria said the equipment “represents part of the continuing US commitment to Nigeria and its neighbours to counter Boko Haram’s senseless acts of terror and promote regional security”. It said the US is also providing the military with advisers, intelligence, training and logistical support. (Photos: US Consulate General Lagos)” cc: @zuchradio
