The Federal Government on Thursday said it was going to beef up security around the borders with neighbouring Chad following the death of President Idriss Deby.

Defence Minister, Major General Bashir Magashi (Rtd), who made this known to journalists at the State House, Abuja, said that the absence of Chad’s influence on the border may worsen Nigeria and other neighbouring countries’ security situation.

This, he explained, has informed the Federal Government’s decision to beef up security around its borders, particularly with the Republic of Chad following the ongoing unrest in the country, which may escalate insecurity.
