President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed deep shock over the latest killing of military personnel in Metele village in Borno State by Boko Haram terrorists.

 Buhari added that urgent measures are being taken to ensure that the loopholes which led to the fatalities are blocked once and for all.
Reacting to the tragic incident in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant(Media & Publicity), Garba Shehu, the President cautioned Nigerians against making a political capital out of national tragedy.

He explained that the armed forces are one family who are commonly committed to the security and safety of all Nigerians.

The President noted that his administration is committed and focused on the security of military personnel and other citizens.
"No responsible Commander-in-Chief would rest on his oars or fold his hands to allow terrorists to endanger the lives of its military personnel and other citizens. 

"Our loyal forces have proved their strength over the terrorists and we are ready to give them all the needed support in terms of equipment and manpower to succeed in ending the renewed threat. 

"In the coming days, I am engaging the Military and Intelligence Chiefs in extensive discussions on the next steps we shall be taking,” the President said.
According to Buhari,  fighting terrorism has taken a global dimension and  requires  international collaboration among states facing similar security challenges.
He reassured Nigerians of his continued commitment to their security and efforts to sustain the momentum in the previous significant successes recorded against the insurgents.
