Buhari Sends Defence Minister To Derby To Tackle Chadian Border Problem




President Muhammadu Buhari, has dispatched the Minister of Defence, Brigadier General Mansur Dan Ali (RTD) to Chad for urgent talks with President Idris Deby and his defence counterpart on the deterioration of the security situation on the Nigeria – Chad border that has led to the recently increased Boko Haram terrorism in the area.

Diplomatic sources that did not want to be named in Abuja said “Nigeria has a Chad  problem in the Multi-National Joint Task Force, MNJTF put together to secure the Lake Chad basin areas and repeal the Boko Haram terrorism attacks against all the countries neighbouring the Lake.

The sources revealed that Chad is believed to be having its internal security challenges and this has reportedly led to their pulling away their own troops manning their border around Lake Chad. “That lacuna is being exploited by the Boko Haram terrorists, who go in and out of Nigeria, Niger and Cameroon to launch terrorist acts.  This is a clear illustration of the fact that terrorism is beyond national borders.”

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity Garba Shehu said he is aware that the Defence Minister is going to Chad but said he is unaware of his mission there.
