President Muhammadu Buhari has cancelled his planned five-day “casual leave’’ as a mark of respect for victims of Boko Haram attacks across the battlefields in the Northeast zone of the country.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the President had planned to spend the casual leave at his home country, Daura, Katsina State from November 27 to December 2.

Militants of the deadly Islamist terrorist group stormed a Nigerian Army base in Borno last weekend killing 118 soldiers.

There has been outcry in the country over the killings which sparked new revelations that Nigerian soldiers are unequipped and ill prepaid in the battle field against Boko Haram.
