Nigeria is reaching out to the European Union (EU) for more help to deal with its security problems.

At an event in Abuja called the “Road to Schuman Forum on Security and Defence,” put on by the National Counter Terrorism Center (NCTC) and the EU, Nigerian Defence Minister Mohammed Badaru talked about how security issues in one place can affect other countries too.

Dr. Ibrahim Kana, who was there for Badaru, said that Nigeria is facing serious issues like terrorism, banditry, and kidnapping. He asked the EU to give support to help solve these big problems.

Badaru also mentioned that other parts of the world get more help and attention than Nigeria, and he asked for this to be made fair.

He believes that all countries should work together to fight insecurity and that Nigeria is ready to do its part to keep peace in its region and all over Africa.
