Mr. Lai made this known while speaking with some international media organizations on Friday in Washington DC.
He stressed that the world needs to see terrorism as a global threat to the existence of the human race while calling for a global cooperation in the fight against terror.
According to him, “Terrorism is global and has no boundary. For the world to be saved, every corner of the world must be saved.
“We can see from the example of the US, where Taliban takes over Afghanistan, a pointer to how difficult it is to fight terrorism driven by ideology.
“The western world should look into helping developing nations like Nigeria in developing their infrastructure.
“This will help to create employment and quality livelihood that will make it difficult for an ideological group like Boko Haram to recruit the youths.”
Mr. Lai further urge the US government and other world powers to step in to help Nigeria and Africa in the fight against the deadly Islamic terrorists plaguing the black continent.
