Adamawa State Governor, retired Admiral Murtala Nyako, came under fire at the expanded National Security Council Meeting held this afternoon at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

Presided over by President Goodluck Jonathan, the meeting was attended by 24 state governors, heads of military and para-military organisations, among others.

The meeting unanimously condemned the memo recently written by Nyako to his colleagues in the Northern Governors Forum (NGF), in which he accused the Federal Government of carrying out genocide against the north.

NGF Chairman, Governor Babangida Aliyu, told journalists after the meeting: “I am sure many of you will be curious about the memo written by one of us. We looked at it all. In fact, he was allowed to read the memo to all of us and we discussed and concluded that for all of us, we need to be very careful with the kind of statement we make.”

Also addressing journalists after the meeting, the Minister of Defence, Gen. Aliyu Gusau, who was flanked by Aliyu and the governors of Abia, Borno and Ekiti states, said the meeting enjoined all holders of public offices to be wary of statements that are capable of exacerbating the already precarious security situation in the country.
