President Bola Tinubu, on Tuesday, met with service chiefs and other heads of security agencies at the State House, Abuja, over rising insecurity.
This is coming on the heels of renewed security breaches in some parts of the country, especially in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), where kidnappers have wreaked some heinous brutality in the last few days.
At the meeting were the Chief of Defence Staff, General Christopher Musa; Chief of Army Staff, Lt. General Taoreed Lagbaja; Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Admiral Emmanuel Ogala; Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Hassan Abubakar; the Inspector General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun, and head of some other security outfits.
Although there was no official briefing on the meeting yet, it is believed that President Tinubu and his security chiefs will be reviewing recent security situation in parts of the country, proposing ways of taming rising free reign of criminals, including kidnapers and bandits.
The meeting is also coming few hours after the Minister of the FCT, Chief Nyesom Wike, convened his own security appraisal meeting over the horrors unleashed on residents of the seat of power by kidnappers, who have resorted to mindless killing and demands for heavy ransoms from victims.
