Share This

By Joy Baba-Yesufu

In furtherance of various international contacts by Nigeria in efforts to stamp out the scourge of terrorism in the sub-region, a bilateral defence meeting between Nigeria and Cameroun is scheduled to commence within the week at the Defence Headquarters in Abuja.
According to a statement, signed by the Director of Defence Information (DDI), Maj Gen Chris Olukolade, the three-day meeting which is being hosted by Nigeria’s Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh will have in attendance his Cameroonian counterpart and his country’s military delegation.
The statement also said the forum is a follow-up to previous international and regional meetings to foster a common ground in the fight against insurgency and terrorism to fashion out ways of strengthening the existing working relationship and cooperation between the two Armed Forces in the war against terror in the West African sub-region.
Olukolade further said the bilateral talk is expected to advance the collaboration to contain the activities of terrorists in the two countries through coordinated military operations along the borders.
The meeting between the two countries is coming on the heels of a similar parley of foreign ministers of Nigeria, Chad, Cameroun, Niger and Benin Republic, held earlier in the week on the appropriate legal framework for cross-border military operations against the Boko Haram terrorists in the region
