Osinbajo Visits Maiduguri Despite Boko Haram Attack
Over 30,000 tonnes are expected to be distributed to the IDPs as part of efforts to avert a humanitarian crisis in the insurgency-ravaged region.
Borno State Governor, Kashim Shettima, who welcomed the Acting President, said he was surprised that the visit took place despite the attacks by Boko Haram on Wednesday.
Ahead of the visit, security was beefed up in Maiduguri and there were many Armored Personnel Carriers stationed in parts of the city, while military helicopters and fighter jets provided aerial surveillance.
