President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the immediate removal of all military checkpoints across the country.

This was part of the outcome of his meeting with the Service Chiefs as he started work today at the Presidential Villa in Abuja after operating from Defence House since his swearing-in on may 29.

President Buhari directed Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshall Alex Badeh, to get the Chief of Army Staff and the Inspector General of Police, to ensure that the order is carried out without delay.

With this development, the Nigeria Police Force is now to be fully in charge of internal security in Africa’s most populous country.
