President Buhari asks for community leaders’ support to end insurgency

President Muhammadu Buhari has sought for community leaders’ support to end the Boko Haram insurgency in the northeast.

Speaking during a condolence visit to Maiduguri the President noted that community leaders’ government must cooperate with them to end the menace of the insurgency.

The President wondered why the Boko Haram crisis had lasted for so long saying the counter insurgency battle cannot be won without good intelligence from the civil population from the local communities.

Buhari visited the Shehu of Borno, Alhaji Abubakar Ibn-Garbai, following the February 9 attack on Auno community where no fewer than 30 travelers were burnt to death in a Boko Haram attack.
