Mnisters of member countries of the community of Sahel-Saharan State (CEN-CAD) have raised concerns over the increasing spate and expansion of terrorist activities in some parts of the region and called for military collaborations.

This was contained in a communique released yesterday, by the security chiefs at the end of the 7th Meeting of Ministers in Charge of Defence of CEN-SAD Member States in Abuja.

The assembly is a sub-regional organisation established in Tripoli, Libya on February 4, 1998 after a summit of Heads of State of Libya, Niger, Mali, Sudan and Chad, although its membership has since increased to over 28 countries, including Nigeria.

The ministers also called for the immediate opening and launching of the Sahel Saharan Counter Terrorism Centre, with a view to accelerating cooperation in the various areas related to fight against terrorism.
