President Muhammadu Buhari is currently meeting with Senate President Bukola Saraki and Yakubu Dogara, speaker of the house of representatives, over the recent killings in Plateau state.
The meeting was requested by the leadership of the national assembly, according to a tweet by the senate president’s official handle on Wednesday.
