    Turkish President, Recep Erdogan Reveals That Terrorists Behind Failed Coup Are Still Residing In Nigeria

    Recep Erdogan

    Recep Erdogan, Turkey’s president claims that the terrorists who attempted to depose him in a coup in 2016 are still active in Nigeria.

    Recep Erdogan made the remarks during a joint press conference with President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday, during his two-day official visit to the country.

    Remember that Erdogan accused allies of a renowned cleric, Fethullah Gulen, who own Turkish schools and hospitals throughout Nigeria, of sponsoring the coup in 2016.

    Mr. Hakan Cakil, the Turkish envoy in Nigeria at the time, had urged Buhari to close Turkish schools and hospitals in Nigeria owned by a group of private Turkish investors inspired by the Hizmet movement’s philosophy.

    The Nigerian government, on the other hand, had rejected the proposal, causing tension between the two countries. In what appears to be a gesture of reconciliation, Erdogan told Buhari on Wednesday that his administration would share intelligence with Nigerian authorities.

    He said:

    As Turkey, we have been closely monitoring the development in Nigeria, our brotherly and friendly nation. The terrorist organisations, the armed gangs, and the marine vendors are continuously active in Nigeria and the Nigerian authorities are continuously fighting them.

    “In order to cooperate further in the field of military operations, defence and security, we are doing everything that will be available. We are ready to share our capabilities, every extending capacity as Turkey with Nigeria, especially in the field of defence, industry, and security which are being praised by the globe.

    “As we’re probably aware of the fact that Turkey has been fighting against terrorist organisations for many decades, such as the PKK, PYD, FETO, DASH and other terrorist organisations.

    “The sensitivity we show in fighting terrorism, I hope will be reciprocated by our Nigerian brothers and sister and our counterparts. The perpetrators of the heinous failed coup of July 15th, FETO are still very active in Nigeria. And we are continually sharing our intelligence with Nigerian interlocutors and authorities.”

    The Turkish President stated that he hoped to increase trade volume between Nigeria and Turkey from $2 billion to $5 billion.

    He expressed hope that Nigerian-Turkish relations would be further developed on the basis of mutual respect and a win-win situation.

    Buhari revealed in his speech that he signed eight major agreements/Memorandums of Understanding on a variety of key sectors, including energy, defence, mining, and hydrocarbons, among others. This is in addition to his statement that the implementation of all eight agreements will begin immediately.
