LAGOS, June 8 Nigeria's acting president is
visiting the northeastern city of Maiduguri after an attack by
Boko Haram jihadists which killed 14 people and injured 24
others, his spokesman said on Thursday.
Yemi Osinbajo, to whom President Muhammadu Buhari handed
power after going to Britain on medical leave on May 7, is in
the city to launch an aid initiative for people displaced by the
Boko Haram insurgency, spokesman Laolu Akande tweeted.
The attack on Wednesday night was the biggest on the city
for about 18 months.
