The UNCR of the United Nations put out a glowing report today about the effectivenss of Nigeria's Anti-terrorism measures.

of special note is the statement that several Nassredin companies were shut down. What is of great interest is that NASCO, owned and operated by Attia Nassredin, the son of Ahmed Idris Nasreddin.
