Buhari meets with security chiefs Thursday
President Muhammadu Buhari will on Thursday confer with security chiefs at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Buhari returned to Abuja last Friday after 18 days in London, during which he attended an education summit and did health checks.
The security forces have in the past few weeks taken the battle more robustly to insurgents, bandits, and all other criminals troubling the country, and they are now surrendering in droves.
Buhari will be informed on developments at the Thursday meeting, while plans to bring a decisive end to the challenges will be formulated.
This is coming as the Nigerian Army says at least 1,000 Boko Haram/Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) members have laid down their arms and surrendered to Nigerian troops.
Army spokesperson, Onyema Nwachukwu, stated this on Tuesday in a statement in Abuja.
Nwachukwu also said all the surrendered terrorists would be received, processed and passed on to the relevant agencies of government for further assessment in line with extant provisions.
