President Muhammadu Buhari will on Monday meet with security chiefs in the nation’s capital, Abuja, to further review and strengthen security network in the country.
The emergency meeting is coming amid security and travel warnings issued by prominent foreign missions in Nigeria regarding possible imminent terror attacks in the nation’s capital, Abuja.
Although, security agencies had conformed raiding some locations and making arrest of terror suspects in Abuja in view of the warnings, Buhari and Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, have separately insisted there is no cause for panic.
A statement from the presidency on Sunday announcing the emergency security meeting to hold at the Presidential Villa, said Buhari also had to postpone indefinitely a public engagement earlier scheduled for same Monday.
“The President, who was initially scheduled to commission the National Agency for Science and Engineering Infrastructure (NASENI) new Technology and Innovation Complex, will receive briefs from the security chiefs, and interject on areas that need more attention.
“The commissioning of the NASENI complex will hold on a later date”, explained the statement issued by his spokesman, Garba Shehu.
