President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday, June 15, 2015 revealed plans to visit Cameroun to liaise with President Paul Biya as regards the war against insurgent group, Boko Haram which is currently terrorizing both countries.

Speaking to AFP, President Buhari disclosed that he would have gone to Cameroun tight after visiting Niger and Chad in the first week in office, but had to shelve the trip because of the invitation he got to attend the G7 summit in Germany.

Speaking on the sidelines of his recent trip to the Afrucan Union (AU) Summit in Johannesburg, South Africa, President Buhari said: “But on my return to Nigeria now, I will try to go to Cameroon.”

On his demands to the G7, Buhari said he demanded help especially intelligence, given the recent alliance between Boko Haram and ISIS.

He said: “The most important support is intelligence. What we are looking for from the G7… is intelligence. We want help in terms of logistics.

“Boko Haram declared that they are in alliance with ISIS, so terrorism has gone international. They are in Mali, they are in Nigeria, they are in Syria, they are in Iraq, they are in Yemen…

“It’s an international problem now.”
