The Inspector-General of Police, Alhaji Idris Ibrahim, who was at the presidential villa, was not part of the meeting with the president but later attended another security meeting which was presided over by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo.

The Director-General of the DSS, Lawal Daura, also joined the IGP, Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, at the meeting with Osinbajo.

The outcomes of the two meetings are still being awaited as at the time of filing this report.

Buhari also in evening broke the Ramadan fast with state governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in his official residence at Aso Rock.
