President Muhammadu Buhari is slated to visit Maiduguri, the Borno state capital today, November 28.
His visit is to flag off the Chief of Army Staff (COAS) conference which begins today.
The President who bears the title of the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces is also expected to meet the troops of the Operation Lafiya Dole at the theatre command fighting insurgency in the north-east region.
President Buhari’s visit comes about two weeks after the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), a Boko Haram splinter group, killed dozens of soldiers in Metele, a remote village near the border with the Niger Republic.
