President Buhari cancels visit to Sambisa forest – See why

President Buhari cancels visit to Sambisa forest: President Muhammadu Buhari has opted out of going to the Sambisa Forest Nigerian Army Small Arms Championship on Monday, rather has delegated the minister of defence Mansur Dan-Ali to represent him.

Chief of army staff, Tukur Buratai, disclosed this on Saturday in Maiduguri saying;


“We have been in the north-east, fighting the Boko Haram terrorists, and you know the significance of the Sambisa forest to them,”

“It used to be one of their centres; in fact, we suspect that their command and control centre was located there before its eventual capture.”

“We also want the place to be dominated by our troops and also to get firm control, so that we will continue to dominate the area,”

“The Nigerian Army Small Arms Championship is part of the training activities scheduled for 2017,”

“It is a championship among the formations of the Nigerian Army.

“The objective of the event is to sharpen the marksmanship skills of the army personnel.
