President Buhari Meets Service Chiefs Behind Closed Doors
President Muhammadu Buhari Thursday met with the service chiefs and heads of other security agencies. The meeting, which held inside the president’s office at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja, lasted several hours. The meeting was attended by the Minister of Defence, General Mansur Mohammed Dan Ali (rtd) and the National Security Adviser (NSA), General Babagana Monguno (rtd). The Service Chiefs emerged from the meeting without speaking to State House correspondents. Daily Trust, however, reports that the meeting was convened to review the security situation in the country, especially the ongoing war against the Boko Haram insurgency.
