Some Service Chiefs have arrived in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital in line with the directive of the Acting President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo. 
 
The Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, was the first to arrive in Maiduguri among the service chiefs. 
 
The arrival comes five days after the Acting President met with the Minister of Defence, Retired Brigadier General Mansur Dan-Ali, and the service chiefs. 
 
The decision followed the pockets of Boko Haram attacks in North-east, especially in Maiduguri with the latest being the abduction of some members of an oil exploration team.

The Defence Headquarters, Abuja, has blamed the weather and informants as responsible for the recent boko haram killings, including the attacks on an oil exploration team.
 
The Director of Defence Information, Major Gen. John Enenche, who said this while speaking on the Boko Haram ambush alleged that there was a collaboration with the terrorists as the insurgents didn’t attack other convoys apart from the oil exploration team. 
 
He stated further that whether and terrain affected the troops operations.

Menwhile The African Union is pledging its unwavering support for Nigeria in its quest to crush Boko Haram.
 
Nigeria's Ambassador to Ethiopia and Permanent Representative to the African Union Bankole Adeoye made the pledge on Monday during a ministerial roundtable with the African Union Peace and Security Council delegation in Abuja. 
 
Speaking earlier, Minister of Foreign Affairs Geoffrey Onyeama commended the delegation for going round the subregion for a first hand assessment of the effect of Boko Haram's insurgency.
