star this property answer text <p>The UK and Nigeria share a deep and long-standing Defence Partnership. During my visit I was able to explore the challenges that our Nigerian partners are facing and understand better how the UK might assist further in tackling the insidious and pervasive threat posed by violent extremist organisations in the north east. Promoting the UK Defence contribution to Women, Peace, and Security was central to the visit, and I was able to meet with non-government organisations and better understand the particular impact of the conflict on women and girls. The UK will continue to work with the Nigerian Armed Forces to promote Women, Peace and Security through training, advisory support, and sharing of experience. I also witnessed first-hand some of the world class training in countering the threat from improvised explosive devices being delivered by British military personnel to their Nigerian counterparts, and I was pleased to be able to gift a range of specialist Counter-Improvised Explosive Device equipment worth c£775,000 to the Nigerian Army to help them in their fight against terrorism, by tackling terrorism abroad we can better protect our security at home.</p>
