Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday arrived in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, to visit the state over the recent Boko Haram attacks on the state.
Mr Buhari’s spokesperson, Garba Shehu, announced the president’s arrival in Maiduguri in a Tweet on Wednesday afternoon.
“12:45pm. President Buhari, aboard the BBJ from Addis Ababa just landed in Maiduguri. He is paying a sympathy visit to the government and people of Borno following the recent horrific incident in which BH terrorists killed several travelers,” Mr Shehu wrote.
One of the recent Boko Haram attacks was the attack in Auno where over 30 travellers were killed by Boko Haram after their vehicles were stopped from entering Maiduguri after 5:00 p.m.
The Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum, blamed the military for the attack.
