    Buhari, security chiefs meet after robbery attempt in Aso Rock

    The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), and Nigeria’s security chiefs are currently meeting at the State House, Abuja.

    The meeting is coming over 24 hours after armed robbers attempted to attack the residence of the Chief of Staff to the President, Ibrahim Gambari,

    The Presidency announced the meeting via its Twitter handle but did not give details of its agenda.

    The meeting, which started at 10 am, is holding place at the Conference Hall of the Office of the First Lady.

    “Security Meeting ongoing, at the State House. President @MBuhari
    presiding, Vice President, SGF, NSA, Ministers, Service Chiefs, IGP, Intelligence Chiefs in attendance. #AsoVillaToday #SecuringNigeria,” the presidency tweeted.

    However, the meeting is expected to review the current security situation in the country.

    Before the meeting, there had been previous security meetings on Friday, April 30, and Monday, May 4.

    Among others at the meeting are the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo; the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr Boss Mustapha; the Chief of Staff to the President, Professor Ibrahim Gambari; and the National Security Adviser, Major-General Babagana Monguno.

    Also attending the meeting are the Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami; Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyema; Minister of Defense, Major-General Bashir Salihi Magashi (Retd.) and Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola.

    The PUNCH had reported there was an attempt by armed robbers to burgle the residence of the Chief of Staff to the President, Ibrahim Gambari, early Monday morning.

    The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, revealed this in a two-part tweet on Monday night after a report by a news platform, Peoples Gazette.

    He tweeted, “The Chief of Staff, Professor Ibrahim Gambari has confirmed that there ‘was a foolish attempt’ to burgle his residence at 3:00am is this morning but it turned out to be unsuccessful.

    “Professor Gambari, whose house is on a street next to the Villa has assured that there is nothing to worry about from the incident.”
