Buhari, on Friday hosted security chiefs at the State House to deliberate the active threats to lives and property of the citizens nationwide.

Monguno disclosed that Buhari expressed confidence that “the forces of evil marauding about in different parts of the country” will be defeated.
The President and the Council adjourned the meeting until Tuesday morning to receive further briefings from the Security Chiefs.
He added, “Mr. President is very prepared to take profound measures in the wider interest of the people and the Nigerian nation.
“There shall be no relenting until peace and security is significantly restored in our communities.”
