The Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, was also in attendance.

Some Nigerians have repeatedly asked Mr Buhari to sack the service chiefs because of the increasing security challenges confronting the country.

Few weeks ago, the National Assembly also advised the president to sack them.

Last week, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, said the government was not ready to fire service chiefs who have been in office since 2015.
