At Long Last! President Goodluck Jonathan Visits Chibok Today, One Month After the Abduction

share on:

President Goodluck Jonathan will visit Chibok today, where over 200 schoolgirls were abducted by Boko Haram insurgents on April 14.

A Presidency source made this known on Thursday to The PUNCH.  Jonathan, according to our source, is set to visit the troubled town to see for himself, the carnage done by the insurgents and hear from eyewitnesses.

It is reported that members of his advance team have already left Abuja for Maiduguri.

The president also plans to travel to Paris, France later in the day where he is to meet with his counterparts from Benin Republic, Chad, Niger and Cameroon.

The meeting will centre on collaboration against Boko Haram and other criminal organisations.

The PUNCH also gathered that the Army authorities had appointed Brig.-Gen. M.Y. Ibrahim, as replacement for Abubakar, who narrowly escaped being injured on Wednesday when soldiers protesting the killing of 10 of their colleagues by insurgents went on a rampage.
