Nigerian Army has inducted a unit of Cameroon Defence Forces into Operation Lafiya Dole to fast track campaign against Boko Haram insurgents.
Deputy Director, Army Public Relations, Operation Lafiya Dole, Onyema Nwachukwu, made this known in a statement issued in Maiduguri.
Nwachukwu said the Cameroonian forces were inducted on Sunday at Gwoza, by the Theatre Commander of Operation Lafiya Dole, Major General Rogers Nicholas.
He explained that the Cameroonian troops would join the ongoing counter-insurgency operations in the northeast and the borders between Nigeria and Cameroon.
Nwachukwu said the troops had been charged to be disciplined, demonstrate high sense of professionalism in the discharge of their duties and comply with instructions by their commanding officers, noting that such attitude would hasten defeat of the insurgents.
