Boko Haram: Buhari, Deby, 4 Leaders Meet In Chad Today

A high level meeting of six African leaders including President Muhammadu Buhari and Idriss Deby will hold today in N’Djamena, the Chadian Capital over the resurgence of Boko Haram insurgency.

The meeting was convened by President Buhari in his capacity as Chairman of the Summit of Heads of State and Government of the Lake Chad Basin Commission (LCBC), according to the president’s special adviser on media and publicity Femi Adesina

He said the one-day meeting will review the security situation in the areas affected by Boko Haram insurgency and adopt measures to enhance the capacity of the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) to meet the challenges of securing the areas.

The presidents of the LCBC member countries of Chad, Cameroon, Niger, and the Central African Republic have been invited to attend the meeting. The president of Benin Republic, a troops-contributing country, has also been invited.

The MNJTF and the national operations of the affected countries have appreciably degraded the capacity of Boko Haram terrorists, although the insurgents still pose a threat.
