Coming at a time when the Boko Haram terrorists are trying to stage a comeback after being allegedly technically defeated, there are strong indications that the United States of America, USA, has again blocked the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government from acquiring fighter ground attack aircraft from Brazil.
A Presidency source, disclosed during the weekend, that Nigeria and Brazil were almost striking a deal on the acquisition of the light attack aircraft, when the US, which produced the aircraft, prevented the deal.
The source, added that the US had told the Brazilians, who acquired 99 of the aircraft from the US firm, Embraer Defence System, that the aircraft deal be put on hold, due to human rights issues involving the Nigerian Military.
Recall, that the US had blocked the immediate past administration of Goodluck Jonathan, from acquiring Boeing CH-47 Chinok helicopters from Israel, in January 2015, purportedly due to human rights issues involving the Military.
Darrel Isah, a US Congressman, had said shortly after a meeting with Service Chiefs, and Defence Authorities in the country, in August 2015, that the US had commenced the process of relaxing the embargo on Military assistance to the country, under the Leahy Law.

The Leahy Law prohibits the US defence sector, from providing military assistance to countries involved in human rights violations.
The source added, that the US Government was not pleased with measures adopted against those accused of human rights abuse.
The source said, “The issue of the arms embargo against the country by the US, is still in force. The US is helping in the area of training; they also have some of their platforms like the C130, which is so crucial in the campaign and operations of the Military.
“However, the surprising thing is that, they have again prevented the country from acquiring A29, Super Tucano light attack aircraft from Brazil.
“The US sold the aircraft to the Brazilians, but they gave a condition that they could only be resold to other countries, with the consent of the US. This means that Brazil must seek the permission of the US to sell.
“The Brazilians were enthusiastic when they visited Nigeria, and the impression we had, was that they were ready to sell, provided the funds were available.
“Curiously, they later developed cold feet, because America started quoting human rights issues to block the deal.
“The aircraft are unique, because the plan was to use the A-29 Super Tucano, Fighter Ground Attack aircraft to replace the ailing Alpha jets.
“The Alpha jets are old now; the Alpha jets, and the MI helicopter gunships are the two major platforms deployed in the North-East.”
