Experts from the European Union (EU) Delegation to Nigeria and ECOWAS led by Ms Letiza Torretta, the EU Delegation Programme Manager on Peace and Security visited the National Counter Terrorism Centre (NCTC) on 11 March, 2024.

The visit was part of a formulation mission to support the design of a new regional programme in Nigeria, Cameroon, Chad and Niger. The future regional programme is expected to complement other similar regional initiatives funded by the EU or other International Partners and guarantee close collaboration with regional organisations.
