President Muhammadu Buhari has approved new security measures for the Southeast and South-South regions of the country.
The approval was given at the security meetings held in the last eleven days and concluded on Tuesday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The acting Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, disclosed this on after a security meeting presided over by President Buhari.
“The Security Council meeting which has taken place three times within the past 11 days has assessed the security situation in the country, particularly in the South-East, South-South as it affects law and order,” he said.
The president also approved a memo presented by the National Security Adviser (NSA), Major General Babagana Monguno (rtd), on the control of drugs, which he said are enablers of Insecurity.
The NSA said the meeting stressed the need to address the security challenges in the country particularly those that have arisen in the last few months.
