Kuje Prison Attack: Buhari calls security chiefs, presides over emergency meeting

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, a few cabinet ministers, and all of the security and service chiefs will be present in the emergency National Security Council meeting that President Muhammadu Buhari has called.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that others attending the security meeting include Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, Chief of Staff to the President, and Prof. Ibrahim Gambari.

The Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Admiral Awwal Gambo, was represented at the meeting.

NAN reliably learnt that the meeting would deliberate on the nation’s security challenges occasioned by the recent attacks on Medium Security Custodial Centre, Kuje, by suspected terrorists where high profile Boko Haram inmates escaped.

Buhari had on Wednesday visited the Custodial Centre, Kuje attacked by the terrorists, where he expressed disappointment with the nation’s intelligence system.

After inspecting some of the points impacted by the attack, Buhari expressed disappointment with the intelligence system and its utilization.

He said: “I am disappointed with the intelligence system. How can terrorists organize, have weapons, attack a security installation and get away with it?”
