President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed deep shock over the killing of military personnel in Metele village of Borno State.

According to the President, strict measures  were already put in place to prevent any further re-occurrence of such tragic event.

Reacting to the tragic incident through his spokesman, Garba Shehu, the President said his administration remains ever committed and focused on the security of military personnel and other citizens.

According to President Buhari, “No responsible Commander-in-Chief would rest on his oars or fold his hands to allow terrorists to endanger the lives of its military personnel and other citizens. Our loyal forces have proved their strength over the terrorists and we are ready to give them all the needed support in terms of equipment and manpower to succeed in ending the renewed threat. In the coming days, I am engaging the Military and Intelligence Chiefs in extensive discussions on the next steps we shall be taking.”


He, however, advised Nigerians against making a political capital out of national tragedy, stressing that members of the armed forces are one family who are commonly committed to the security and safety of all Nigerians
