Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno state cried Monday for the resurgence of Boko Haram attacks in his state when he led a delegation to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari.
The meeting is currently taking place within the council chamber of the House of Representatives of the State House, Villa Abuja.
The governor collapsed when he delivered his opening remarks, to say why he and his team were visiting the president again.
The meeting was attended by the three state senators, the members of the House of Representatives, the candidate for governor of APC and the traditional rulers.
Also attending are the Chief of Defense Personnel, the National Security Adviser, the General Director of the State Service Department (DSS) and the General Director of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA).
Boko Haram has intensified attacks in northern Borno with reports suggesting that they have taken over some cities, including Baga, a major fishing area.
Mr. Shettima had previously led an emergency expanded security meeting in Borno, where the decision was made to go to Abuja and meet with Mr. Buhari.
