Boko Haram members attack Maiduguri hours after President Buhari’s visit

Suspected Boko Haram members have struck Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state just few hours after President Buhari paid a condolence visit to the governor of the state.

According to reports, the sect members came around 7:05pm after the Muslim prayer time to Jiddari Polo general area of Maiduguri Metropolis, shooting sporadically as residents scampered for safety.

“We are under serious attack right now. Boko Haram stormed the town hours after the president left” a resident said.

This afternoon, President Buhari paid a condolence visit to the government and people of the state following the gruesome muder of over 30 persons by the sect members on Sunday February 9th.

Speaking at the palace of Abubakar Elkanemi, the Shehu of Borno, President Buhari pointed out that Boko Haram could not thrive without local support.

“This Boko Haram or whatever they are, cannot come up to Maiduguri or environs without the local leadership knowing because traditionally the local leadership is in charge of security in their own respective areas. So with my understanding of our culture, I wonder how Boko Haram survives up till now” he said
