President Muhammadu Buhari has been indisposed in the last couple of weeks and unable to attend two jumat services at the mosque within Aso Rock.
He had also been unable to preside over two Federal Executive Council meetings.
Those in attendance at the meeting were the host, Gen. Ibrahim Babangida, Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar and Gen. Olusegun Obsanjo.
According to a source privy to the closed door meeting, the trio agreed to “continue to closely watch the situation” and “will speak out” at the appropriate time.
Ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo had secretly entered Minna on Monday evening and was received by Governor Abubakar Bello who drove him to the uphill residence of Gen. Babangida.
A source said Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar was already waiting in IBB’s residence by the time Obasanjo arrived.
All the domestic and security staff of IBB were asked to excuse the generals as they went into the almost three-hour meeting.
Niger State Governor Abubakar Bello was said to have waited in one of the sitting rooms for the period the meeting lasted.
Bello was reported to have also driven Obasanjo to the airport after the clandestine meeting.
