Breaking News: Buhari Holds Security Meeting With Service Chiefs
President Muhammadu Buhari is currently holding a closed-door meeting with the Service Chiefs at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
The President will be discussing an appraisal of the security situation in the country.
In attendance are the National Security Adviser, Mohammed Babagana Monguno, Minister of Defense, Mansur Dan-Ali, Director General of the NIA, Ahmed Abubakar and Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris.
The meeting comes after President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Monday held separate meetings with the security chiefs.
The president first met with the security chiefs and heads of security agencies after which the Vice President held a meeting with the Inspector General of Police, Mr Ibrahim Idris; the Director-General of the Department of State Security, Lawal Daura; and the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami.
Both meetings were held behind closed doors.
Although the IGP refused to disclose details of the meeting which lasted for over two hours to journalists, it is believed to be in connection with the ongoing case involving Senate President Bukola Saraki and the police.
The police had on Sunday invited the Senate President for questioning after suspects arrested in connection with the robbery in Offa, Kwara state, allegedly indicted him.
The suspects had claimed that they were political thugs of the Senate President and the Governor of Kwara State, Abdulfatah Ahmed.
But in a statement released hours later by his Special Adviser (Media and Publicity) Yusuph Olaniyonu, the Senate President described the allegations as “baseless” and “another ploy by the Police to implicate him by all means”.
