President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday met with the Chief of Defence Staff and Service Chiefs behind closed doors in his office.

The meeting, which started at 14:00 hours, lasted for just 19 minutes.

None of the attendees at the meeting spoke to  Journalists, as they all hopped into their waiting vehicles and drove off.

However, Defence Minister, Mansur Dan Ali simply said they were in the Presidential Villa to review the meeting they had on Tuesday June 4.

It was the third time the service Chiefs met with their Commander in Chief this week.
