Idriss Deby’s Killing: Nigeria To Beef Up Security Near Chad's Border, Says Defence Minister

The Nigerian Government on Thursday disclosed that it was going to beef up security around the borders with neigbouring Chad following the killing of Chadian President Idriss Deby earlier this week.

Defence Minister, Major General Bashir Magashi (rtd), who made this known to newsmen at the State House, Abuja, stressed that the absence of Chad’s influence on the border may worsen Nigeria and other neigbouring countries’ security situation.

This, he explained, has informed why Nigeria will beef up security around its borders, particularly with Chad, following the ongoing tense situation in the country, which may escalate insecurity there.

Idriss Deby’s Death Will Create Big Vacuum In Efforts To Jointly Confront Boko Haram - Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has reacted to the death of someone he hosted in Abuja just late last month.

“I'm deeply shocked and devastated by the sudden death of President Idriss Deby on the battlefront, defending the sovereignty of his country. The late President played a very active role in our regional joint collaboration in the military campaign against Boko Haram terrorists,” Buhari wrote on his verified Twitter handle on Tuesday.

“He was a friend of Nigeria who enthusiastically lent his hand to our efforts to defeat the murderous Boko Haram terrorists that have posed grave security challenges not only for Nigeria, but also our African neighbours, particularly Chad, Cameroon and Niger Republic.

“The death of President Deby will surely create a big vacuum in the efforts to jointly confront the Boko Haram terrorists and the Islamic State West Africa Province. We must now strive to mobilize even greater collaboration to defeat the terrorists.

“On behalf of the government and people of Nigeria, I am extending deepest condolences to the people of Chad, and their country’s new leadership.”
