Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday ended almost a week of silence regarding attacks by Islamists which security sources said killed around 100 soldiers in the northeastern state of Borno.
“President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed deep shock over the killing of military personnel,” the presidency said in an emailed statement issued by Buhari’s spokesman, Garba Shehu.

“Immediate measures are being taken to ensure that the loopholes which led to the fatalities are blocked once and for all,” it said, adding that Buhari would hold strategic talks with military chiefs in the coming days.

Militants attacked a military base on Nov 18 in the village of Metele in Borno, the epicentre of an insurgency by Boko Haram and its splinter group, Islamic State in West Africa (ISWA).
The attack was carried out by ISWA and killed around 100 Nigerian soldiers, four security sources told Reuters.

A fifth said 96 soldiers have died in the northeast in recent days, mostly in Metele, and Islamic State has claimed responsibility for attacks in the last few days.
