Those present at the Council Chambers with the President include Vice President Yemi Osinbajo; Secretary to Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha and Chief of Staff to the President, Professor Ibrahim Gambari and National Security Adviser, Major General Babagana Monguno (Rtd).

Others include the Chief of Defence Staff, General Gabriel Olanisakin; Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu; director-general Department of State Services, Yusuf Bichi and director-general, National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Ahmed Rufai.

The meeting is going on behind closed doors but the agenda might be related to the mood of the nation and how to find a solution to unrest across the nation.

Meanwhile, It was previously reported that mixed reactions trailed the national broadcast made by President Muhammadu Buhari on the ongoing EndSARS protests across the country.

It was reported that some lives were lost and property worth billions of Naira were destroyed since Monday, October 19, when the protest was said to have been hijacked by some hoodlums.

The president had on Thursday, October 22, banned all the protests across the country and asked the protesting youths to engage the governments on how the problem would be totally solved.

Nigerians, however, took to their social media pages some minutes after the presidential broadcast to x-ray the speech and expressed their concerns over the address.
