President Buhari will on Monday hold an emergency security meeting with security chiefs in the nation’s capital, Abuja, to further review and strengthen the security network in the country.
Newsonline reports that President Muhammadu Buhari has summoned the Security Chiefs to an emergency security meeting billed to hold on Monday, October 31, 2022, in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
This online media platform understands that the Presidency in a series of tweets on Sunday, October 30, 2022, said the meeting is aimed at strengthening the security network across the country.
President Buhari would receive briefs from the Security Chiefs during the meeting.
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 Abuja terror alert claimed that the terrorists were targeting government facilities, places of worship, and schools, among others.
Many 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.
Recall that the United States of America said it was evacuating families out of Abuja due to a security threat but not diplomats, clarifying an earlier statement.
A State Department statement revealed, on Thursday 27 October, that the US had ordered the exit of families as well as non-emergency personnel from Abuja, developing precautionary measures after an earlier alert to US citizens.
The State Department also clarified Friday that the order to leave applied only to family members and that non-essential workers were being given the choice but were not required to depart.
