President Muhammadu Buhari has summoned an emergency security meeting with security chiefs in the nation’s capital, Abuja, tomorrow, October 31.
This is coming against the backdrop of the confusion caused by series of security alerts issued a couple of days ago, by the Embassies of the United States of America and the United Kingdom. Recall that as a result of the security alerts, many big shops and other private and public institutions have closed shops in the last three days.
A statement today, October 30, by a Presidential spokesman, Malam Garba Shehu said that President Buhari and the security chiefs, including the Inspector General of Police, the National Security Adviser, the Nigeria Intelligence Agency, the Chief of Defence Staff, the Department of State Service and other service chiefs, will review and strengthen security network in the country.
Garba Shehu said that because of the urgency and importance of the meeting, the President has postponed the commissioning of the National Agency for Science and Engineering Infrastructure (NASENI) new Technology and Innovation Complex, to a date to be announced later.
The President, according to the spokesman, will, at the security meeting, receive briefs from the security chiefs, and interject on areas that need more attention.
