The Chief of the Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, has visited soldiers who were injured following the Boko Haram’s attack of troops in Gorgi, Borno State, where at least 47 soldiers were killed in an explosion.

The army chief visited the injured soldiers on Sunday at the 7 Division Medical Services and Hospital at Maimalari Cantonment Maiduguri, where he went round the hospital and inspected the facilities.
