The denial was contained in a statement released by the Press Officer of the British High Commission in Abuja, Joe Abuku.

It reads:

“Reports suggesting that the British Government has set up a meeting with President Buhari, former President, Jonathan, and representatives of Niger Delta groups to discuss a solution to recent violence in the Niger Delta region are incorrect.”

“We are aware that President Buhari is currently in London seeking medical attention. We are not aware of any meetings on the Niger Delta while he is there.”

Buhari is in London to receive treatment for a persistent ear infection.
