Mistrust between Nigeria and neighbouring Cameroun as well as disagreements over how to deploy troops against Boko Haram have stalled efforts to set up a regional force to combat the Islamist militants.
Failure to launch the 2,800-strong mission as planned in November has left the insurgents in control of large swathes of Nigeria's North-east from where they launch attacks.
The group, which aims to carve out an Islamist emirate in northern Nigeria, carried out a scorched-earth raid this month on Baga, a town on the shores of the Lake Chad that was due to serve as the headquarters for the regional force.
The fall of Baga and reports of the slaughter of up to 2,000 inhabitants underscore the risks of Nigeria and Cameroun failing to work together.
Amid mounting international alarm, Ghana's President John Mahama, Chairman of the West Africa regional bloc ECOWAS, said leaders would press the African Union next week to create a multinational force.
