The Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh, has directed the Service Chiefs to ensure immediate compliance with the ceasefire agreement just concluded between the Federal Government and Ahlul Sunna Li Daawa Wal Jihad, better known as Boko Haram.

He gave the order this afternoon while closing the coordinating conference between Nigeria and Cameroon on trans-border military operations, held at the Defence Intelligence Agency Headquarters in the Nigerian capital, Abuja.

The Chief of Defence Staff, who announced the ceasefire at the occasion, however, told the delegates that it was without any prejudice to the outcome of the three days interactions and the conclusions of the forum.

At the meeting was the Cameroonian Chief of Defence Staff, GCA Meka Rene Claude, leading his country’s military delegation. Service Chiefs and senior military officers also attended the event.
