President Muhammadu Buhari has arrived in Maiduguri to sympathise with the state and families of the victims of Boko Haram.
The president went straight to Maiduguri from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia where he attended the 33rd Ordinary Session of the African Union.
Buhari said on his twitter handle that “I assure all Nigerians that we are taking steps to ensure improvement in security, nationwide. In Borno the military will work harder to deal with the insurgents. I am also appealing to community leaders and the populace to give our troops the intelligence and cooperation needed.”
Dateline Nigeria reports that some residents booed the president to show their anger with the way the Boko Haram war is being handled.
