The accord was said to have been struck at a meeting between Mr President and the leadership of the Northern Elders Forum at the presidential villa, Abuja, which lasted into the night.
Consequently, President Jonathan has summoned a security meeting with chiefs in the country, which will be held today at the presidential villa. They are to finalize the tactics for the amnesty. Also, a committee will be set up to oversee the process.
