New Nigeria leader in foreign trip

LAGOS - Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari is making his first foreign trip - to Niger - since taking office last week.

He is expected to discuss the regional offensive against Boko Haram militants with Nigeria's northern neighbour.

Niger, Chad and Cameroon have been helping Nigeria recapture territory from the insurgents, who Mr Buhari has described as "mindless" and "godless".

At his inauguration, Mr Buahri vowed that he would tackle "head on" the six-year Islamist insurgency.re
