Insecurity: Buhari meets security chiefs, others
Amid heightened insecurity in parts of the country, President Muhammadu Buhari has met with heads of security agencies as part of ongoing moves to find lasting solutions to the problem.
The meeting, which took place at the First Lady Wing of the presidential villa, Abuja, on Friday, came as voices had become more strident calling for concrete steps to stem the worrisome tide.
It ended without any public statement.

Those who attended the meeting included the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo (SAN); the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Mr Boss Mustapha; the Chief of Staff to the President, Professor Ibrahim Gambari; and the National Security Adviser (NSA), Major-General Babagana Monguno.
