Punch reports that the meeting was meant to review the security situation in the country, especially in the North East.

Meanwhile, newsmen were not briefed on the details of the meeting after deliberations.
The latest meeting was held after the leader of the Boko Haram sect, Abubakar Shekau, debunked claims by Nigeriamn military that he was killed early September in Kodunga, Borno State.
However, it was not clear whether the development was discussed at the meeting.

The sect is believed to have caused the death of thousands of innocent Nigerians through their terror attacks across Nigeria.
