In a bid to enhance the fight against Boko Haram, President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the establishment of an Intelligence Fusion Centre in Maiduguri, the Borno state capital.
The presidency made this known in a tweet on its official handle @NGRPresident on Monday.
The centre is meant to support the Nigerian military as it intensifies efforts to prevent/ end suicide bombings in the country.
“President @MBuhari has approved the establishment of an Intelligence Fusion Center in Maiduguri to support the Nigerian military as it intensifies efforts to prevent/end suicide bombings,” the tweet reads.
This move by Buhari, analysts say, is yet another step in his committed war against terrorists, insurgency and extremism, especially in the North-East. It’s a move that is necessary to help the return of durable peace, rehabilitation of the army of internally displaced persons (IDPs) and post-crisis reconstruction of the geo-political zone with the assistance of the World Bank, International Monetary Fund (IMF), European Union, China, United States of America, Japan, Pakistan and Russia.
