President Muhammadu Buhari is currently at Maimalari Cantonment in Maiduguri, for the Chief of Army Staff Annual Conference.
The Conference, which was originally scheduled to hold in Benin City, was this week moved to Maiduguri, following the recent attack by Boko Haram in Metele, Borno state, that led to the deaths of many soldiers.
President Buhari after declaring the COAS, conference open, headed to a hospital where wounded soldiers are receiving treatments.
Today in Maiduguri I visited our wounded troops. Across the Northeast we have officers and men fighting bravely and tirelessly to keep our country safe from terrorism and violence. I salute their sacrifice on our behalf. And may the souls of the fallen rest in peace.
