    The agenda of the meeting which started about 10am behind closed doors was not yet made public, but it might not be unconnected to the security situation in the country especially the ongoing nationwide protest against Police brutality.

    President Buhari had made a live broadcast over the ongoing #EndSARS protests on Thursday evening and had asked the youths to end the protests, saying that their demands have been heard loud and clear.
