President Muhammadu Buhari, on Monday night, met with one of the national leaders of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Former National Chairman of the APC and former Governor of Osun State, Chief Bisi Akande, was also present at the meeting.
The meeting was held at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Also, President Buhari met with the Borno State Governor, Prof Babagana Zulum, behind closed doors at the late hours of Monday.
The purpose of the meeting was yet to be discloded as of press time, however, credible source suggested that the meeting was centred on the security situation in the country, especially in Borno State.
Borno State is currently experiencing incessant attacks staged by Boko Haram insurgents.
On Sunday, the Boko Haram fighters invaded a military base, the headquarters of 156 Task Force Battalion in Mainok.
Mainok is about 60 kilometres west of Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.
According to the Nigeria Army, one police officer and six soldiers lost their lives in the attack.
Recall also that Zulum had also been attacked by Boko Haram insurgents.
In September 2020, Zulum’s convoy was attacked by Boko Haram insurgents. On September 25, Zulum narrowly escaped an attack along Kauwa-Baga road in Borno. 30 fatalities was recorded, including 10 policemen and four soldiers.
Barely 48 hours after the attack, Zulum was attacked again by the insurgents on his way back to Maiduguri, Borno State.
