Boko Haram: President Buhari Meets Service Chiefs Behind Closed-door

President Muhammdu Buhari is currently holding a security meeting with the nation’s service chiefs and heads of security agencies.

The Nigeria leader, who is presiding over the meeting at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja, emerged from the COVID-19 self-isolation which began after he returned last week Friday from the United Kingdom.

Naija News reports that Buhari will receive briefings from the security chiefs on the activities of the military and security agencies in tackling terrorists, bandits, kidnappers and all other criminals in the country.

The President will also be briefed on the gains made by the military in the past few weeks that have seen Boko Haram insurgents laying their arms and surrendering to Nigerian troops.

Recall that the President’s spokesperson, Garba Shehu, had in a statement on Tuesday said the security meeting is to deliberate on bringing a decisive end to the security challenges facing the country.

He had said: “President Muhammadu Buhari will on Thursday confer with security chiefs at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

“The President returned to Abuja last Friday after 18 days in London, during which he attended an education summit and did health checks.

“The security forces have in the past few weeks taken the battle more robustly to insurgents, bandits, and all other criminals troubling the country, and they are now surrendering in droves.

“The President will be brought up to speed on developments at the Thursday meeting, while plans to bring a decisive end to the challenges will be formulated.”
