Why W/African Militaries Must Collaborate to Tackle Regional Insecurity – Irabor
The Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), Gen. Lucky Irabor, says there is need for a cooperation among West African armed forces to deal with insecurity in the sub-region.
CDS Irabor stated this when he hosted the Chief of Defence Staff of Burkina Faso Armed Forces, Senior Colonel David Kabre, at the Defence Headquarters, in Abuja.
Irabor said that Nigeria was proud to have an alumnus of the Nigeria Defence College become the Defence Chief of Burkina Faso.
He said: “No doubt the West African sub-region is experiencing the menace of terrorism and insurgency and we understand that to address this scourge, there has to be collaboration of all countries within the sub-region.
“That is why I am delighted to receive you and to also let you know that we shall share our experiences.
“We will indeed take action that will ensure that we redress all issues together and ensure that we stamp out every form of terrorism within our sub-region”.
PRNigeria gathered that the Burkina Faso CDS, Kabre, will be among those that will be honoured as an alumni at the graduation of course 30 of the National Defence College Abuja.
Kadre said he visited Irabor to seek advice on his new appointment and to also present the security situation in the West African sub-region.
He reiterated the need for deeper collaboration between Nigerian and Burkinabe armed forces to address the challenges of terrorism and insurgency.
