President Muhammadu Buhari has remained mute over the fall out between the Nigeria Police and the Nigerian Army despite presiding over security briefing on Thursday.

President Muhammadu Buhari met with Service Chiefs on Thursday to review ongoing internal security operations across the country.

But nothing was said of the face off between the police and the army.

The Presidency is also yet to wade into the matter.

Deal of the day

The police has demanded the Nigerian Army answer questions over the killing of three policemen by soldiers and the release of a kidnap kingpin by the same soldiers.

After the meeting with the Service Chiefs, the Chief of Air Staff, Marshal Abubakar, who briefed the media after the meeting, did not comment on the issue.

He only spoke about the security situation in the country. “We want to assure Nigerians that the Armed Forces of Nigeria and other security agencies will continue to work to ensure the security of Nigerians and to also ensure that no individual or group of individuals undermines the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Nigeria, that in a nutshell is the outcome of this meeting.
