The visiting Chief of Defence Staff of the Federal Republic of Nigeria held a working session with his Cameroonian counterpart on April 28, 2016 at Defence Headquarters in Yaounde.
The days of the terrorist group, Boko Haram, are counted. Cameroonian Defence Forces in conjunction with the Nigerian Army, operating under the Lake Chad Basin Commission’s Multinational Joint Task Force, are carrying out mopping up operations in the last strongholds of the terrorist group. The Federal Republic of Nigeria’s Chief of Defence Staff, General Abayomi Gabriel Olonisakin, was in Yaounde yesterday, April 28, 2016, to commend Cameroon’s Defence Forces for their efforts and commitment in fighting and destroying Boko Haram. Speaking to the press after a working session with Cameroon’s Defence Chief of Staff, Lieutenant General Rene Claude Meka, General Olonisakin said his working visit was also aimed at seeking ways to further strengthen the efficient and fruitful military partnership between both neighbouring countries. He said joint operations have been going on well on the battlefront, with desired success recorded. “Very soon, we will be looking at other aspects of the Multinational Joint Task Force,” he further disclosed, to assure that more activities will be seen on the battlefield. Before leaving Yaounde aboard a special flight at 2 pm, the Nigerian military official met with the Secretary of State in the Ministry of Defence in charge of the National Gendarmerie, Jean Baptiste Bokam. The Nigerian delegation also comprised the Nigerian-born Commander of the Multinational Joint Task Force, Major General Lamidi Oyebayo Adeosun.
