Defence Headquarters Begins Bilateral Meeting On Terrorism

Director of Defence Information, Major General Chris Olukolade

The Nigeria Defence Headquarters has announced a three – day bilateral defence meeting between the country and Cameroun on Wednesday in Abuja.

This move, it indicated was a further international step in contacts by Nigeria in the efforts to stamp out the scourge of terrorism in the sub-region.

In a statement by its Director of Information, Major General Chris Olukolade, confirmed that the meeting was being hosted by Nigeria’s Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh and it would have in attendance his Cameroonian counterpart and her military delegation.

The forum which is a follow-up to previous international and regional meetings to foster a common ground in the fight against insurgency and terrorism, the statement revealed was 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 informed that the bilateral talk was expected to advance the “collaboration to contain the activities of terrorists in the two countries through coordinated military operations along the borders”.

The meeting he added was in line with the similar parley of foreign ministers of Nigeria, Chad, Cameroun, Niger and Benin Republic held earlier in the week on appropriate legal framework for cross border military operations against the Boko Haram terrorists in the region.
