Buhari Arrives Yobe State

President Muhammadu Buhari in Yobe State

President Muhammadu Buhari has arrived, Damaturu, Yobe State, as part of his condolence-tour to states affected by Boko Haram attacks and herdsmen-farmers crisis.

The President, who arrived on Wednesday, was received by the state governor, Mr Ibrahim Gaidam, and other top government officials.

During the one-day working visit, Mr Buhari is expected to meet with government officials, traditional rulers, community leaders, and parents of the abducted students of the Government Girls Science Technical College (GGSTC), Dapchi.

Recall that members of Boko Haram insurgents had invaded the school last month, abducting some of the girls.

The Federal Government subsequently confirmed that 110 girls were unaccounted for after the incident.

While the herdsmen-farmers crisis and Boko Haram attacks have claimed several lives, the Presidency announced on March 5 that the President would be visiting some of the states affected by the killings.

He had visited Taraba, Plateau and Benue, to commiserate with the families of those who lost their lives.

States yet to be visited by the President are Zamfara and Rivers.
