“The Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) in which , Niger,
Cameroon, and Chad have contingents are part of the ongoing onslaught
against terrorists in this region. The countries that make up the Lake
Chad Basin Commission also had some understanding, which now enables a
massive move against terrorists from all angles. Contrary to the
impression being pushed in some quarters, it is the Nigerian forces that
planned and are driving the present onslaught against terrorists from
all fronts in Nigeria; not the Chadian Forces as is being propagated by
some media.
For instance Chadian forces have been deployed in
Baga Sola, which is a Chadian territory. There have been some joint
deployments and patrols around Kirawa, Ashgashiya and other locations in
borders of Cameroun, Nigeria and Chad as part of these operations.
Chadians and others are however keying into and working in concert with
the overall plan for an all-round move against the terrorists as agreed.
Nigeria’s territorial integrity remains intact”.
