Nigeria’s Chief of Defence Staff, General Gabriel Olonisakin, has said the Nigerian military would continue to maintain one indivisible entity.

He spoke in Abuja on Thursday while receiving the Commander of the French forces in Senegal , Brigadier General Pascal Facon, at the defence headquarters.

General Olonisakin stressed that no matter the attempt of any group or persons to entrench disunity in some sections of the country, the Nigerian military “will fight to ensure one Nigeria and one destiny”.

Collaborate In Fighting Insurgency

His guest, Brigadier General Facon, had told the gathering that the French government was willing to collaborate in fighting insurgency in the north-east.

He further applauded the Nigerian military for their successes in containing the activities of Boko Haram.

Recently the Federal Government has faced several protests from pro-Biafra group in the south-east, the Islamic Movement of Nigeria in Zaria and the Boko Haram insurgency which has claimed more than 10,000 lives and displaced over 2.2 million persons.
