President Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria on Saturday, August 1, 2015, arrived the neighbouring Benin Republic on a one-day trip to draw support for the war against Boko Haram insurgents in the sub-region.

Buhari departed the  Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport around 9am on Saturday with Lagos State immediate past Governor, Raji Babatunde Fasola, and other officials.
