U.S. Comes To An Agreement On Intelligence Sharing With Nigeria

share on:

The United states has finally come to an agreement, which was struck over the weekend, with Nigeria on intelligence sharing to enable the search for the kidnapped chibok girls by Boko Haram, spokesperson for Pentagon, Colonel Steve Warren, revealed.

According to reports by Reuters, the U.S. military which has been planning to fly a couple of surveillance aircraft over Nigeria couldn’t due to inability to wade through protocols with the government.

Though Warren added that even though the agreement will allow the U.S. military share intelligence as well as aerial imagery, doesn’t not imply that all raw U.S. intelligence could be shared.

The announcement by Pentagon was followed by a meeting in Paris amongst West African Leaders consisting of Nigeria’s neighbours Chad, Cameroon, Niger and Benin, and Western officials, to flesh out a plan enabling them for the first time to share intelligence, coordinate action and monitor borders as well as agree to jointly work together to combat Boko Haram, saying the group had become a shared threat.
