President Muhammadu Buhari has met with Liberia’s President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf behind closed doors in Abuja, NAN reports.

The news agency reports that the visiting president is in Nigeria to brief President Buhari on sub-regional security challenges.

The meeting comes ahead of the 3rd Dakar International Forum on Peace and Security in Africa slated for December 5 and 6.

The Nigerian president is expected to leave Abuja later today for the forum in Dakar, Senegal.

Sirleaf, who is the current Chairperson of the Authority of Heads of State and Government of the Economic Community Of West African States (ECOWAS), is expected to brief President Buhari on efforts made to curb terrorism in the sub-region.

The two leaders may also discuss other issues bordering on sub-regional integration and bilateral trade, according to NAN.

The Liberian leader, who arrived Abuja on Sunday on a two-day official visit to Nigeria, visited the ECOWAS Commission in Abuja on the same day.

The ECOWAS chairperson also held closed-door meetings with the President of the commission, Mr Marcel de Souza, former President Olusegun Obasanjo, and senior officials of the commission.
