Gusau said Shettima wants the meeting as part of multi-dimensional response to the resurgence of Boko Haram attacks in parts of the state.
Nigerian authorities reported on Thursday that the fighters overran the multinational joint task force post (MNJTF) which lies in the fishing town of Baga, less than 10km from the Nigerian-Chad border, and sacked a naval base in Mile 3, some 5km from Baga.
While some reports said the town has been overrun by Boko Haram insurgents, the military said the attackers have been repelled and reported the loss of a naval personnel.
The press conference will take place at the headquarters of Theatre Command of Operation Lafiya Dole, according to a notice sent to correspondents.More news: It sounds like Grover drops an F-bomb in this audio illusion

Al Jazeera's Ahmed Idris, reporting from Calabar, Nigeria, said that the fighting around Baga continued on Friday morning.
The town was later retaken, but jihadists continue to attack the military and civilians in the area, which is an ISWAP stronghold. Similarly, a search-and-rescue team has been constituted.More news: Kim Kardashian posts family photos from Christmas Eve party

Troop reinforcements were in pursuit of the Boko Haram fighters, he said.
