Buhari To Visit Troops In Maiduguri. by reports1 (f): 3:22pm on November 28
President Muhammadu Buhari will on Wednesday visit troops fighting the dreaded Boko Haram sect in the northeast.

Buhari will also dispatch the defence minister to Chad following a jump in attacks.

The presidential visit comes after months of deadly raids by the IS-affiliated jihadists on military bases which have left scores of troops dead or missing in the volatile region.

In a posting on Twitter on Monday, presidential spokesman Bashir Ahmad said Buhari would attend an army conference in Maiduguri as well as address troops to boost their morale.

“President Muhammadu Buhari has cancelled his planned official visit to Benin, Edo State today, to visit Maiduguri, Borno State on Wednesday,” he wrote.

Also this week, Defence Minister Mansur Dan-Ali will hold talks with his Chadian counterpart General Daoud Yaya over “strengthening the operations” of the Multinational Joint Task Force fighting Boko Haram in the Lake Chad region.

There have been numerous attempts to overrun army bases by Boko Haram since July. Many of the attacks have been claimed by the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), a faction of Boko Haram.

More than 27,000 people have died since the start of insurgency in the northeast in 2009 and 1.8 million are still homeless.
