Ahead of Thursday’s visit to Maiduguri by President Muhammadu Buhari to assess security situation in North-East, the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), Gen. Lucky Irabor, has arrived in Borno capital with other service chiefs.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that on Irabor’s entourage are Chief of Army Staff, Maj. Gen. Farouq Yahaya, Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Isiaka Amao, Chief of Naval Staff, Admiral Awwal Gambo, and Chief of Military Intelligence.

The Inspector-General of Police, Usman Alkali, who arrived earlier, received the CDS and service chiefs at the Maiduguri Airport from where they all proceeded to headquarters of Joint Task Force, Operation Hadin Kai.

Welcoming the security chiefs to the headquarters of Joint Task Force, Operation Hadin Kai, the Acting Theatre Commander, Maj. Gen. F.O Omoigui, said the task force has recorded successes in many operations.

“These successes have continued to create more enabling environment for socio-economic activities,” Omoigui said.

The security chiefs later held closed door meeting with the Acting Theatre Commander, Omoigui, the GOC 7 Division, Brig. Gen. A.A Eyitayo, Component, Formation and Unit commanders in the fight against insurgency.

NAN also reports that while in Maiduguri on Thursday, the President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces is expected to address troops and inaugurate some completed Federal and State Government projects in the frontline state.
