US Backs Nigeria’s Counter-terror Plans

11 September 2011

Sets New Strategies To Black Out Terror Communication

AS the global community marks the 10th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks on the United States, President Barack Obama has ordered a communications campaign against terrorists groups abroad in countries like Nigeria, where terrorist activities are increasingly feared and elsewhere where they have found roots.

Besides, the US government also announced that its Terrorist Finance Tracking Program has been made available to Nigeria among other countries, which have suffered one terror attack or the other in recent times.

A statement from the US Treasury Department over the weekend, as the US government marks one decade after 9/11, said the Terrorist Finance Tracking Program (TFTP) was initiated in 2001 “to identify, track and pursue terrorists and their networks.”
