The West African War is a military conflict between the Republic Federation allied with Nigeria against Abrizhou allied with the Islamic Militant Forces of the Boko Harem in the Borno State, Nigeria.

The Militant Forces grew in power after Nigeria's defeat in 2025 and 2026, defeating the remnants of the Nigerian Forces within the Borno. The threat of a Militant assault grew within Lagos, causing URF Forces to send additional 15,000 troops.

A month before, the territory of Lagos was attacked by a group that sneaked in and destroyed much of the Reserved Force's equipment. They soon began attacking the guards that try to defended the base, ending with reinforcements from the Marine Corps. After they investigated, it was found that they was from a transport route from the Borno State. Part of the Republic Federation's relief effort in the region.

As they fought, Abrizhou Forces pushed into Lagos with everything they got, blockading the territory with it's navy. In response, the URFS Renegade, URFS Assault, and their Task Force moved in.

They pushed the enemy navy away and set itself to defend the territory and blockade the nation, invading with both Army and Marines. Expelling the Queen and splitting the nation, they soon annexed their half into the Lagos Territory.

On June 19, 2034, the conflict ended after the Battle of Maiduguri. Only 2,000 fighters and 320 Specialist has surrendered to the Allied Force, soon a Treaty of Lagos was made. Allowing Nigeria to be restored to it's orginial state and allows U.R.F. to increase control of Lagos.

As they fought, they came across several T-72 tanks and took control of them, wreaking havoc across the base.

After Fighting for hours, a action unit from the RF Marine Corp arrived from Abrizhou. Once they arrived, they was requested to support the Reserve Force.
