Nigeria’s Service Chiefs and Heads of other security agencies have been cautioned against working at cross commitments.

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who gave the charge, also urged them to work together in a coordinated manner in order to achieve one single purpose of tackling the challenges of terrorism, insurgency, banditry, oil theft, sea robbery and piracy, among others.

National Security Adviser, Babagana Monguno, after the first meeting which Tinubu had with security and intelligence chiefs at the State House, Abuja, said the President demanded frequent consultations and timely actions on reports at the meeting of the general security appraisal committee. 

He added that Tinubu also said his administration would embark on reforms of the security architecture.

Also, the Chief of Defence Staff, General Lucky Irabor, said they received new instructions on how the President wanted security to be pursued, assuring that the team was already inspired to carry out the new tasks. Others were the Director-General of the Department of State Service, DSS, Yusuf Bichi; and the Director-General of the National Intelligence Agency, NIA, Ahmed Rufa’i Abubakar and others.
