The President of Somalia, Hassan Sheikh Mohamud revealed to attendees of a security conference in Germany on Sunday, February 14, 2016, that Boko Haram members are trained in his country.

Though it is not clear whether the sect members are trained by Al Shabaab, a terror group that has been unleashing terror in Somalia.

Mohamud  said “Without a stable Somalia, the whole region of the Horn of Africa will remain unstable and by and large, the African continent. There are proofs and evidence that (for) some time Boko Haram has been trained in Somalia and they went back to Nigeria

“The terrorists are so linked together, they are associated and so organised, (that) we the world we need to be so organised.”

Recently, the Nigerian Air Force reported that the location of the abducted Chibok girls may have been identified.

Speaking to Channels TV, the Director of Public Relations at the Nigerian Air Force, Group Captain Ayodele Famuyiwa, said the Air Force has been deliberately avoiding that location in the ongoing aerial bombardment of Sambisa forest, so keep the girls safe.

The Islamist terror group-Boko Haram, announced its allegiance to ISIS on March 2015.
