President Muhammadu Buhari and his predecessor, Goodluck Jonathan, are reported to have held a clandestine meeting on Thursday, at the Presidential Villa in Aso Rock, Abuja.
According to SaharaReporters, the meeting took place at the private residence of the President at about 9pm.
The two men are believed to have met to discuss the increasing spate of militancy in the Niger Delta region which has caused Nigeria to record its lowest amount of crude output in years.
Jonathan, who had returned from Cote D’Ivoire on Wednesday, was allegedly reassured by the President that neither him nor his wife, Patience will be arrested in the ongoing war against corruption.
The meeting between Buhari and Jonathan was allegedly brokered by former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
Obasanjo, on his own part, held a private meeting with Buhari earlier today.
