Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed deep shock over the killing of military personnel in Metele village of Borno State.
Reacting to the tragic incident through his spokesman, Garba Shehu, the President said his administration remains ever committed and focused on the security of military personnel and other citizens.
Buhari said: “No responsible Commander-in-Chief would rest on his oars or fold his hands to allow terrorists to endanger the lives of its military personnel and other citizens.
“Our loyal forces have proved their strength over the terrorists and we are ready to give them all the needed support in terms of equipment and manpower to succeed in ending the renewed threat.
“In the coming days, I am engaging the Military and Intelligence Chiefs in extensive discussions on the next steps we shall be taking.”
