Outcome Of Council Of State Meeting Turns Bloody, As Buhari Orders For The Heads Of  Nnamd Kanu And All Arewa Youths Before “Sunrise” – FULL DETAILS

President Muhammadu Buhari, on Tuesday, ordered the Security Chiefs to clampdown on the Arewa Youths and the self-acclaimed Biafra Leader, Nnamdi Kanu, for crossing the red line on Nigeria’s unity.

This is the outcome of the 3-hours Council of State meeting, which took place at the President’s official residence, inside the Aso Rock Presidential Villa, in Abuja.

The meeting Post-Nigeria learnt was attended by Defence Minister, Mansur Dan-Ali, National Security Adviser, Babagana Monguno, Chief of Defence Staff, Abayomi Olonishakin, Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai, Chief of Air Staff, Sadique Abubakar, Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, Director-General of the Department of State Security, Lawal Daura, and a representative of the Chief of Naval Staff.


Addressing State House Reporters after the meeting, Olonishakin said they spent 3-hours updating Buhari on “all security issues around the country, within the country, and outside the country, where our troops are.”

He listed the threats they were directed to end, as including terrorism, kidnapping, herdsmen/farmers clashes, and the Indigenous People of Biafria, IPOB, agitation for secession.

“Of course, we have just updated him, because he is aware of what’s been happening. He has been receiving regular briefings from the Acting President, and he has also been going through the print media and electronic media, to follow the happenings in the country.”

On whether Buhari raised any question on the IPOB’s secret service, 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. Comments were made as to what to do as regards those issues.

Asked if forces would be mobilised to the South-East, he said: “Every security like I said, has been treated, and we are going to enhance our operations in all the areas we need to do that. Like I said, he has given the necessary directives which will be carried out by the Military and the security agencies.

On whether Buhari was worried about the activities of Boko Haram in the North-East, Olonishakin said: “On the Boko Haram issue, you all know it is an asymmetric warfare. It is not that the Boko Haram have stepped up their game, it is just the issue of suicide bombing that has been the problem, and of course, we are also working with the security agencies and the intelligence agencies to make sure that we address that menace.”
