France and Nigeria are to step up their joint fight against Islamic terrorists in West Africa. The announcement by Nigeria’s President Goodluck Jonathan came at the end of his three-day visit to the French capital which also saw a deal for a 75,450 million euro loan to build a bus network in the capital Lagos.
Jonathan said security experts from the two countries will work together to stop terrorism from spreading throughout the region.
“When Africa is undergoing a crisis, Europe feels the effects,” he explained.
