Shehu, in an interview on Channels Television on Wednesday night, said the presidency expects the military to thoroughly investigate and disclose what happened.

“We are coming from major successes. Look at how Boko Haram is unravelling in the north; they surrendered. All of the victories that have been recorded even in the north-west — these bandits are being taken out in large numbers.

“So, in a climate — political climate — in which people seek to make political capital out of this unfortunate incident, you don’t rule in anything, you don’t rule out anything,” he said.
