None of them spoke with journalists at the end of the parley that lasted about an hour.

After the meeting, they also consulted briefly with Dasuki at the forecourt of the President’s office before they left.

Details of discussion at the meeting were not available as of  the time of filing this report.

The last time the security chiefs met with Jonathan was on March 17 when they briefed him of their preparation for the general election and the success recorded in the anti-terrorism war in the North Eastern part of the country.
