Buhari meets the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant, General Yusuf Tukur Buratai at the Aso Rock Villa Presidential Palace.

A statement issued by the Presidency on Monday said General Buratai met with Buhari to brief him on his military’s progress in the fight against Boko Haram.

The meeting comes two days after ISWAP members killed six soldiers in Auno, Borno State.

It has been more than two months since General Buratai has returned to the northeast to lead a campaign against jihadists in Borno, Yobe, and Adamawa states – where they are most vulnerable.

The statement added that 1,400 fighters of Boko Haram and ISWAP were killed in the area and that 166 spies were captured.
