The minister of state for Defence, Bello Matawalle, has urged the United States government to always share with Nigeria, information on impending terror attacks on the country.

He said such information and intelligence the U.S.A sends to its citizens in countries with crisis could be shared with Nigeria to fight banditry and terrorism.

Matawalle said this when he hosted the assistant secretary for defence for African affairs at the U.S department of defence, Jennifer Zakriski on Wednesday in Abuja.

He said: “It is indeed a privilege to welcome you and your team to Nigeria. Our discussion today underscores the importance of collaboration and intelligence sharing in tackling common security challenges. Nigeria values its partnership with the United States, and we are committed to enhancing our cooperation in defence matters for the mutual benefit of our nations.”

The minister sought more intelligence sharing between Nigeria and the U.S to fight banditry and terrorism.

Zakriski reaffirmed the commitment of the United States in supporting Nigeria’s efforts at addressing security concerns.

She said Nigeria is a key partner for the United States in Africa, and collaboration is vital in addressing shared security threats.

“Nigeria is a key partner for the United States in Africa, and our collaboration is vital in addressing shared security threats. Today’s meeting marks another milestone in our efforts to strengthen defense ties and enhance regional security,” she said.
