The United States is ready to go further to help Nigeria defeat Boko Haram militants, US Secretary of State John Kerry said on Sunday, pledging Washington's continued support for the counter-insurgency.
"We will continue absolutely to support the (Nigerian) military in this fight. Boko Haram continues to kill scores of innocent civilians," he said on a visit to Lagos, condemning recent attacks.
Kerry, who met President Goodluck Jonathan and his main rival in next month's elections, said the United States was "deeply engaged" with Nigeria but added: "We are prepared to do more."
