By Wisdom Deji-Folutile

President Muhammadu Buhari is currently in a closed-door meeting with General Mahamat Idriss Deby, Chad’s Transitional Military leader and son of deceased Marshal Idris Deby, in the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

President Buhari received General Deby in the Presidential Villa at about 11:00am on Friday.

Although there has been no official disclosure on the matters to be discussed, it is expected that the two leaders will discuss the security situation at the shared borders of Nigeria and Chad.

Buhari and General Deby may be seeking to find a solution to the infiltration of Boho Haram and ISWAP insurgents in the Northern region of the nation and arms proliferation in the Sahel region of the country.

Recall that Mahamat Deby took over after his father, who was the former President of Chad, died of wounds sustained in battle with rebels just after his reelection in April.
