Text Nigeria's National Security Adviser and Ambassador to the United States have both delivered messages to the US State Department urging them

"Please don't put our little group of bad guys on your terror list as a pre-text to come and invade our country!!"

its for your own good! Security over Liberty right?
I wont be suprised if we see the U.S. And possibly NATO ramp up operations in Nigeria.
