On the 31st of October 2020, the world was awakened to the news of a deep military rescue operation in northern Nigeria by the US Naval Seal.

The American citizen Philip Walton was rescued during a high-risk US Military raid by elite Navy Seal Commandos before his abductors could get far. Seal Team Six carried out the rescue mission and killed all but one of the captors.

The recent rescue operation of Philip Walton by the US military SEAL 6 Elite team shows that the U.S can carry out deep military strikes and operations in Nigeria without the knowledge of the Nigerian military or government.

This is also a pointed that the US possesses enough Intel’s and information to carry out targeted attacks to crush Boko Haram commanders and other high-profile ISWAP targets but why has the US military not for once carried out such an attack.

The rescue of Philip Walton exposes the weakness in Nigeria security and also put Nigeria dominance in the region at risk. If in the future Nigeria’s foreign policy does not align with that of the United States and also threatens the U.S interest, the US can carry out strikes on Nigeria’s government or military installations. It also shows the US can carry out strikes in Nigeria with impunity.

Nigeria is currently at the mercies of the world’s greatest military powers because Nigeria leaders have failed to leverage the country’s economic strength to dissuade countries heavily dependent on Nigeria economically from hosting various military bases.

Dozens of US and French military installations including reaper drone base spread across various West African countries from Niger, Chad, and Cameroon to Mali. Nigeria on the other hand lacks the Surface to Air Missiles(SAMs) to protect its airspace against a possible invasion.

 

The rescue of Philip Walton also shows that If the elimination of Boko Haram was the US goal for the building of military installations across West Africa, they would have long obliterated the jihadist group. Rather the US SEAL 6 rescue operation brings to the bare that securing and combating threats to U.S geopolitical interests were and have been the initial priorities of US military activity in the region.
