Barely 24 hours former President Goodluck Jonathan returned to the country, President Muhammadu Buhari met with him Thursday night behind closed doors over the renewed militancy in the Niger Delta region.

The meeting was at the official residence of the President at the Presidential Villa.

A Presidency source who pleaded anonymity said that the meeting held at about 9pm.

The Niger Delta Avengers have in recent times been bombing oil installations in the region and had announced that its sabotaged has reduced daily production from 2.2 million barrels per day to 900 million.

The Niger Delta Avengers had also issued warning to President Buhari to stay clear from the region, a warning that led to the President aborting his visit to Ogoniland to flag of the cleanup of the environment as recommended by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).

According to the Presidential source, “Indeed, the two leaders met. The meeting was a private one. I believe it has to do with the militants’ attacks in the Niger Delta. The former President must have offered useful suggestions and assistance on the way out.” (Saturday Sun)
