The Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), General Abayomi Gabriel Olonisakin, has called on world military leaders to unite and pull resources to fight global common enemy – terrorism, which is now an albatross to the existence of humanity. General Olonisakin made this call during a meeting of the Committee of World Chiefs of Defence Staff held recently in Washington DC, USA.

According to General Olonisakin, terrorism does not only hinder development of nations, but is fast threatening the corporate existence of human race. He cited the cruelty of the Boko Haram terrorists in Nigeria which kill, maim and destroy property in unimaginable proportion as example while condemning in very strong terms these inhumane treatments.  

He added that Boko Haram terrorists and other terrorists groups elsewhere if not contained through the instrumentality of joint forces and information sharing may snowball into catastrophic dimension. General Olonisakin therefore urged world military leaders to do everything possible to assist one another in the fight against terrorism saying, “terrorism being an asymmetric warfare requires wider spectrum of cooperation with other nations, since insurgency and terrorism transverse beyond borders.”

While in the Washington DC, General Olonisakin used the opportunity to seek for more enhanced bilateral and multilateral defence cooperation with the Chiefs of Defence Staff of USA, Britain and France.

The Committee of World Chiefs of Defence Staff later endorsed the holding of regular meetings with the aim of reappraising issues that may require urgent attention and channeling of resources to address global terrorism.
