French President, Francois Hollande who announced this in Paris said that his country put up the plan to host a summit with Nigeria and its neighboring countries in Paris on May 17, saying that the meeting will discuss security and the threat of Boko Haram.
A French official says Nigerian President has agreed to attend a security summit on Saturday in Paris to focus on the Boko Haram terrorist network, which abducted more than 300 schoolgirls in Nigeria last month.
It has been gathered that France is still awaiting confirmation from leaders of the four countries bordering Nigeria: Benin, Cameroon, Chad and Niger. Representatives of Britain, the EU and the United States will also be invited.
The official spoke today on condition of anonymity because details on the summit have not been finalized.
