buhari visits soldiers

President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday visited injured soldiers in Maiduguri, Borno state.

On November 18, the Al Barnawi faction of Boko Haram attacked the 157 Task Force Battalion based at Metele in the northern part of Borno State, killing scores of the Nigerian troops while others were injured.

Buhari who was in the state for the COAS Annual Conference used the opportunity to address Nigerian soldiers at the battlefields to further boost their morale.

He later visited the hospital where injured soldiers were being treated.

He commended them for their bravery while commiserating with the families of the fallen heroes.

Buhari had in a statement issued by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu in Abuja on Saturday, assured that immediate measures are being taken to ensure that the loopholes which led to the fatalities are blocked once and for all.
