None of the attendees spoke to State House correspondents after the close-door meeting which lasted over two hours.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the meeting took place immediately after President Buhari received letters of Credence from the Ambassador of Niger to Nigeria, Alat Mogaskia; the High Commissioner of Ghana, Alhaji Rashid Bawa and that of Apostolic Nuncio of the Holy Sea to Nigeria, Most Rev. Archbishop Antonio Guido Filipazzi.

The agenda of the meeting was not known as there was no briefing of the media at the end. The Police and Department of State Services (DSS), especially have been charged to step up their efforts and capacity in this regard.
