The Senate has held a closed-door meeting with Service Chiefs in view of the prevailing security issues in the country, especially in the North East.
The two-hour meeting, chaired by the Senate President Bukola Saraki, was attended by other principal officers of the Senate and chairmen of security related committees.
Although newsmen were shut out of the meeting, the Leader of the Senate Ali Ndume later told journalists that the issues discussed could not be revealed to the public.
He said that they bordered on national security and as such was for the sole consumption of those who were in attendance.
Senator Ndume, however, expressed the satisfaction of the Senate as this was the first time the upper legislative chamber was being fully briefed on matters of security.
The service chiefs present were Chief of Defence Staff, Major General Abayomi Olonishakin; Chief of Army Staff, Major General Tukur Buratai; Chief of Naval Staff, Rear Admiral Ibok-Ete Ibas and Chief of Air Staff, Air vice Marshal Sadique Abubakar.
