Senate President Bukola Saraki, on Wednesday, February 3, 2016, met with Nigeria’s service chiefs to discuss the fight against Boko Haram.

The meeting, which was attended by other legislators, is said to have lasted two hours and was held behind closed doors.

“We have been briefed properly but these are security issues we cannot really disclose any of it,” Senate Leader, Ali Ndume said while speaking to journalists after the meeting, The Nation reports.

 “Unlike before, the Senate was not abreast or updated on the efforts they are making; now we have very full, honest, open and transparent discussion on the activities.

“This is a security meeting that we just had; it will be wrong for me to disclose the details.

“We are satisfied because we have never had this kind of briefing before; we are part of it now; we know what is the problem; we know what are the challenges,” he added.

The meeting was attended by Chief of Defence Staff, Maj.-Gen. Abayomi Olonishakin; Chief of Army Staff, Maj.-Gen. Tukur Buratai; Chief of Naval Staff, Rear Adm. Ibok-Ete Ibas and Chief of Air Staff, AVM Sadique Abubakar.
