Aside Nigeria, President Erdogan equally informed that he would be visiting other African countries including Togo and Angola for similar synergy against terrorism and extremism.

The perpetrators of the heinous failed coup of July the 15th, FETO, is still illegally active in Nigeria, and we are continuously sharing our intelligence with the Nigerian interlocutors and authorities. I hope and pray that our Nigerian brothers will forge a closer solidarity in this field with us, the Republic of Turkey.”
