President Muhammadu Buhari will on Thursday meet with the nation’s Security Chiefs at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
It will be the first security meeting in more than three weeks as a result of his recent travel to the United Kingdom (UK) for a global Education Summit and medical check-up.
Buhari returned to Abuja last Friday after spending 18 days in London, where he attended an education summit and met with his doctors.
The president has been in isolation since his return and has been working from home, in adherence to COVID-19 protocols.
The president, according to a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, on Tuesday, is expected to receive updates on the fight against terrorism, banditry and other violent and criminal activities, and agree with the security chiefs on what the next lines of action should be.
What you should know
The president has held several meetings with his security chiefs in recent times, but the spate of insecurity and kidnapping-for-ransom engulfing all parts of the country is yet to abate.
However, security forces have in the past few weeks taken the battle more robustly to insurgents, bandits, and all other criminals troubling the country, as they are now surrendering in droves.
