The meeting which was held inside the official residence of the President at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, came barely 24 hours after the former President returned to the country.


A Presidency source who pleaded anonymity told our correspondent on Friday that the meeting which was described as “private” held at about 9pm.

“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,” a source said.
