The Nigerian army says it has inducted a unit of Cameroon defence forces into the Lafiya Dole operation to fast-track the campaign against Boko Haram insurgents.

Onyema Nwachukwu, deputy director, army public relations, operation Lafiya Dole, disclosed this in a statement issued in Maiduguri.

Nwachukwu said the Cameroonian forces were inducted on Sunday at Gwoza by Rogers Nicholas, a major general and theatre commander of the operation.

He explained that the Cameroonian troops would join the ongoing counter-insurgency operations in the north-east and the borders between Nigeria and Cameroon.

“The Cameroonian troops and their equipment were subsequently handed over to the General Officer Commanding (GOC), 7 Division, who is also the Commander, Sector 1, of Operation Lafiya Dole.”

Nicholas was quoted as calling on the troops to be disciplined and demonstrate a high sense of professionalism in the discharge of their duties.

He also tasked the troops to comply with instructions by their commanding officers, noting that such attitude would hasten defeat of the insurgents.

The induction exercise was attended by the leader of the Cameroonian defence forces delegation.
