Update: Buhari Will Not Visit Sambisa Forest – Buratai


Contrary to wide media report, Nigeria’s Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai says President Muhammadu Buhari, who is the Commander-In-Chief of the Nigerian Armed Forces, will not be opening this year’s Nigerian Army Small Arms Championship billed to hold in the Sambisa forest.
Mr Buratai announced this while speaking with newsmen on the final arrangements for the event on Saturday in Maiduguri, Borno state capital.
He said the president would be represented at the opening of the event by the Minister of Defense, Mannir Dan-Ali.
The Nigerian Army is organising the contest in the forest after the fall of Boko Haram’s camp zairo in December 2016 in order to consolidate the army’s grip on the area.
