America to Finance Nigerian Anti-Terrorism TV Channel

U.S. Finances Nigeria's Anti-Militant TV Channel to Counter Boko Haram

America finances 24-hour anti-militant TV channel in Nigeria. 

The United States is financing a new 24-hour satellite TV channel in northern Nigeria meant to counter insurgencies by the militant Islamist Boko Haram and other groups in the region, the New York Times reported on Friday.

A U.S. official confirmed the project was under way but did not give full details. The official said the United States would "support Nigerian efforts to provide an attractive alternative to the messaging of violent extremists."

The project is a result of discussions with Nigeria dating back to late 2012 on ways to cooperate against Boko Haram and the content of the channel will be produced by Nigerians in Nigeria, the official said.
