President Muhammadu Buhari is currently presiding over the national security council meeting in the chambers of the presidential villa. In attendance are service chiefs and the inspector feneral of police, national security adviser, minister of defence, minister of interior and other some other members of the president’s cabinet.
This meeting comes off the hels of call for the resignation of the swrvice chiefs over their failure to curb banditry and the boko haram insurgency that continues to ravage the northern part of the country and other violent crimes that has become prevalent recently.
The National Security Adviser disclosed that the major resolution reached at the National security council meeting is the need for greater collaboration between government agencies and the wider society, but he refused to disclose what kind of collaboration is required while insisting that the security challenges facing the country are multidimensional.
The National Security Adviser told state house correspondents that the security council which is the highest security body in the country did not consider calls by the national assembly for service chiefs to resign over their failure to end the boko haram insurgency and other violent crimes.
