Nigeria’s air force was showing off a new attack helicopter during their 53rd anniversary this past weekend. The helicopter is going to be a new addition in the combat against Boko Haram. The helicopter has the capabilities to deliver appropriate firepower at the right time and at the right place. In addition to this new helicopter, the Nigerian military is also hoping the Trump administration will advance in their plan to sell high-tech aircraft to Nigeria. If Trump does sell aircraft to Nigeria, it is in our best interest to moderate when and how these aircraft are used. The Nigerian military has not always been precise with firepower, the most recent example is when they accidentally bombed a refugee camp and killed  100+ people. It is in our best interest to moderate the use of the aircraft and make sure the government is using it for the fight against Boko Haram.
