President Muhammadu Buhari visited wounded soldiers of the Nigerian Army in Maiduguri, Borno State, today Wednesday, November 28, 2018.
The President visited the soldiers on Wednesday after attending the Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Annual Conference where he declared the event open.
The conference had been moved from its initial location of Benin, Edo State, in light of the recent killing of over 100 soldiers when terrorists overran the 157 Task Force Battalion in Metele village in Guzamala local government area of Borno during an attack on November 18.
He appreciated their sacrifice for the country, saying:
“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.”
