Northeast-Nigeria-developmentA comprehensive plan for post-conflict development of the northeast is expected to arise from the two-day Security Summit coming up in Abuja on Thursday.

Discussions at the Summit will focus on intelligence on the location, rescue of the over 200 abducted Chibok girls and an implementable action plan for the joint fight against insurgency in the African region.

Presidents of four member countries of the Lake Chad Basin will be attending the Summit as well as representatives of other neighbouring African countries, the European Union, the United States and the British government.
