The Ugandan president, according to report has been showing interest and concern over the activities of the deadly Boko Haram sect operating in Nigeria over five years ago.
Museveni was quoted in 2014, during the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan, as warning the Nigerian government against negotiating with the Boko Haram insurgents.
