Buhari lands in Maiduguri

President Muhammadu Buhari has arrived in Maiduguri to declare open the Chief of Army Staff Annual Conference holding in Borno State.

The COAS conference was originally scheduled to hold in Edo State but it was moved to Borno state, in the wake of the attack on three military bases in Metele by Boko Haram terrorists.


Scores of Nigerian soldiers were killed in that attack and President Buhari’s presence in Maiduguri is expected to serve as morale booster to the troops.
