Buhari dispatches Defence Minister to Chad

Following the recent killing of soldiers by Boko Haram, President Buhari has sent the Minister of Defence, retired Brig-Gen. Mansur Dan-Ali, to Chad for an emergency meeting with the Chadian President, Idris Deby, on the deterioration of security at the Nigeria – Chad border.

The terror group attacked a military base in Metele village, Guzamala local government area of Borno State on Monday, November 19, 2018, killing 100 soldiers.

A soldier who survived the attack, said that he and his colleagues had to run for their lives because the terrorists had superior fire power.

The Federal Government and the Nigerian Army have consistently told Nigerians that Boko Haram has been defeated.
