 …I’m ready now to fight terrorism, says Buhari

Several persons sustained injuries on Saturday when insurgents attacked a mosque in Sajeri village, at the outskirts of Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.

According to eyewitnesses, the insurgents suspected to be Boko Haram members were said to have opened fire on the congregation who were observing their prayers.

Governor, Babagana Umara visited the community to condole with the victims.

Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari has said that he was battle-ready to fight terrorism in the country with full force.

Buhari also said that he would host leaders of Lake Chad Basin Commission in an informal summit on the sidelines of Democracy Day and Second Term inauguration celebrations on June 12, 2019, in Abuja.

A statement by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu in Abuja on Saturday stated that the meeting would focus on bringing up new strategies to end the menace of Boko Haram in the Lake Chad region.

Speaking at a bilateral meeting with President Idris Deby Itno of Chad Republic in Makkah, Saudi Arabia, where both leaders are attending the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, OIC, summit, President Buhari said it was time for “a new way forward that completely removes the threat of terrorism from Lake Chad sub-region.”

The President said since elections were over, he would have more time to pursue the threat of terrorism with “full force’’.

The Nigerian and Chadian leader agreed on the need for sub-regional leaders to sit down and agree on changing the strategy “for a more sustained operation, which will continue until the threat is brought to a permanent end.’’

President Buhari and President Deby Itno also discussed the challenge posed by rainy season to military operations against terrorism, agreeing to urgently review strategies that will bolster onslaught against insurgents.

The two leaders talked about how the meeting in Abuja will respond to infiltration of displaced elements of the Daesh, an acronym for ISIL’s Arabic name, al-Dawlah al-Islamīyah fī l-ʻIrāq wa-sh-Shām, through Libya into the Lake Chad area.
