Insecurity: Jonathan aborts State visit to Namibia, meets service chiefs


goodluck_jonathanPresident Goodluck Jonatha has cut short his visit to South Africa and aborted his state visit to Namibia, scheduled to start Thursday, due to seemingly escalating insecurity in the country, the latest being the killing of 20 policemen by a local militia in Nasarawa.

In a statement issued on Thursday, Reuben Abati, the President’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, said “the President is returning to Abuja immediately to personally oversee efforts by national security agencies to contain the fresh challenges to national security which have emerged this week in Borno, Plateau and Nassarawa States.

“President Jonathan will on arrival, meet with the Chief of Defence Staff, the Service Chiefs, the Inspector-General of Police and heads of national security services on arrival to review the security situation in the country.”
