Buhari summons Security Chiefs to emergency meeting amid Abuja terror alert


President Muhammadu Buhari has summoned the Security Chiefs to an emergency security meeting.

The emergency security meeting is billed to hold on Monday in Abuja.

In a series of tweets, the presidency said the meeting is aimed at strengthening the security network across the country.

During the meeting, Buhari would receive briefs from the Security Chiefs.

The tweets read: “President @MBuhari will on Monday meet with security chiefs in the nation’s capital, Abuja, to further review and strengthen security network in the country.

“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 at a later date.”

This is coming amid a terror alert in the nation’s capital of Abuja.

There has been palpable tension in Abuja, and its environs since the United States and the United Kingdom warned of a possible terrorist attack in the nation’s capital.

The alert claimed that the terrorists were targeting government facilities, places of worship and schools, among others.

Several government and private establishments have been shutting down operations over the fear of attack by the daredevil terrorist that have, over the years, kept the country hostage.
