Nigeria - British M16 Special Forces Arrive Abuja To Help Combat Boko Haram

A small number of UK special forces soldiers have arrived Abuja via a C17 military transport aircraft and are helping to co-ordinate and advise the Nigerian military effort against the islamists groups in the north.
They are part of a team of British military and MI6 personnel in the country who are providing support to Nigerian military commanders. 

None of the special forces soldiers are being deployed in a combat role, sources insisted.

Sources have however revealed that the presence of M16 in Nigeria is connected to the capture of a british Setraco last week.

"The prime minister has made it clear that the help the UK will provide is of the intelligence and logistical variety," said a Whitehall source, who did not want to be named.
