President Muhammadu Buhari has approved new security measures specifically for the South-East and South-South geo-political zones of the country.
He gave approval during the security meeting he presided over at the presidential villa, Abuja, on Tuesday.
The acting Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, disclosed this to correspondents after the meeting but declined to give details.
