The United States military said it is building a $100 million drone base near Nigeria, particularly in Agadez, central Niger, to help the West African country combat militant groups and protect its borders.

There are strong indications that the United States government may launch attacks against Boko Haram insurgents in the North-East, as a drone base being constructed in the Niger Republic would soon be completed.

According to reports, the American dronebase is under construction in Agadez, a town in Niger.

The facility is expected to offer US military, greater ability to use drones against Islamist extremists in countries like Libya, Mali andNigeria.
