Steps govt must take against terror gang, by diplomats

NIGERIA is painfully having to lick more of the economic and social wounds inflicted on it by the terror attack on the United Nations (UN) House in Abuja on August 26, 2011.

In the incident, 23 persons were confirmed dead, with 11 of them being UN personnel.

The latest loss Nigeria has suffered from the incident is the right to host the global food security meeting of the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) slated for this month in Abuja now moved to Senegal.

The UN agency, which wrote to the Commission of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) on the decision, said it was due to the UN suspension of all official travels to Nigeria “until further notice.”

FAO said at the weekend that the event would now hold in Dakar, Senegal on October 6 and 7, 2011.
