Barely 48 hours after the release of three lecturers of University of Maiduguri and 10 police officers’ wives by the Boko Haram, President Muhammadu Buhari has summoned an emergency security meeting at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The meeting which started at about 11.00 a.m., is attended by all service chiefs and Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris.

The Minister of Interior, retired Lt. Gen. Abdulrahma Dambazau and the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr Geoffrey Onyeama, are likely to brief the Council on some security related matters.

Some heads of para-military organisations under the ministry were also seen at the venue of the meeting.

It would be recalled that the Department of State Services (DSS) on Saturday briefed President Muhammadu Buhari on the negotiated release of the lecturers and police officers’ wives.

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, who announced the release in a statement in Abuja, recalled that those released were abducted by suspected Boko Haram terrorists at  Magumeri in Borno.
