President Muhammadu Buhari is now presiding over a meeting with the country's security council at his residence in Abuja, on Tuesday, August 22, 2017.

Others at the meeting that started at about 11:15 a.m. include the National Security Adviser, Babagana Monguno, and the Director-General, Department of State Security, Lawal Daura.

On this occasion Buhari instructed specifically the chiefs of security to execute accurately their statement divulged on Monday regarding Nigerian unity is not on sales.

President Muhammadu Buhari has directed security agencies to safeguard the lives and property of all citizens and secure the nation's borders from aggressors, the Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Gabriel Olonisakin has said.

On the issue of the Independent Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), Olonishakin said, "The issues of security, every security threat, all security threats were treated one after the other ranging from terrorism to kidnapping, herdsmen/farmers clash, to IPOB issue, were all treated".

Android O is also heavily optimised for battery life optimisation, apart from startup time, graphics rendering and stability. Your device gets the Android Oreo upgrade; you will notice that the "Allow unknown source" setting option is already gone.

"What IPOB has done is to call for a sit-at-home but Boko Haram is a terrorist group, except you want IPOB to go underground like Boko Haram".

Osinbajo, who received President Buhari on arrival from London on Saturday, also met behind closed doors with the President in his office for about two hours.

While debunking the assertion, the Presidential spokesman said it was in the region that Buhari was christened Okechukwu during electioneering.

Now that the President is back, we wish to recall his attention to urgent security situations facing the nation. In spite of broad-based condemnations and efforts by leaders and youth groups from the South East and the North to seek amicable settlement, some hate songs were issued in the North against Ndigbo in their midst.

In his absence, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, as Acting President, had done his best under the circumstances he found himself. "Surely, things are looking up and youths of the South-East will stand with you until you achieve your vision for the country".
