President Muhammadu Buhari has arrived in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.

The President landed at the Air Task Force Base in Maiduguri at exactly 11: 02 am, and headed to the palace of the Shehu of Borno.

He is expected to attend the Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Annual Conference holding in Maiduguri on Wednesday, and will declare the event open.

The event was originally scheduled to take place in Benin, Edo State.

Buhari's visit comes after a high-casualty attack by Boko Haram on the Army in Metele, Borno State, which resulted in the death of well over 100 soldiers.

Therefore, he will visit the military hospital, and will equally address the troops.
