Senate President, David Mark, yesterday narrated the activities of Boko Haram ravaging Nigeria to the world parliamentary body in Geneva, where he solicited the support of the global community to end the menace as quickly as possible before the 2015 polls.

In a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Paul Mumeh, Mark said the Boko Haram has the capacity to wipe out nations if urgent and collective efforts are not taken to contain them.

He told a gathering of the Inter – Parliamentary Union (IPU) conference holding in Geneva, Switzerland that Nigeria has taken necessary measures to ensure that the activities of the terrorist group is brought to an end, but desires support from the international community.

Addressing the 131st session of IPU titled “Achieving Gender Equality, Ending Violence Against Women”, Mark said all hands must be on deck to end violence of all kinds especially against women and children.

He stressed that “Nigeria welcomes the efforts of international partners and friends who have stood by us in this trying time.”
