Indeed, the federal government of Nigeria is maximising all opportunities at its disposal to make insurgency, insecurity and terrorism a thing of the past in the country.
One of such avenues to profer practical solutions to these related problems made itself available in a high-profile meeting at the Nigerian Police headquarters in Abuja on Tuesday, February 18, The Nation reports.
This was the general assembly of the African Police Organization (AFRIPOL) attended by the Nigerian Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Ibrahim Adamu and the president of the body, H. E. Khelifa Ounissi of Algeria.
At the gathering, IGP Adamu called for support from the Algerian government with respect to measures of combating violent crimes in all parts of Nigeria.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that the Senate president of Nigeria, Ahmad Lawan, on Tuesday, February 18, called for a beefing-up of security at the National Assembly complex in Abuja. Lawan made this call to security operatives during an emergency meeting with the leadership of the Senate on Tuesday.
He stressed that to this effect, an urgent arrangement will be made to tighten security at the complex and also make sure officers were more on red alert in case of any eventually.
The Senate boss said that this became necessary after he was informed by the Department of State Security (DSS) of threats of attack on the building.
He said: “Personally I had a report from the DSS that we had a security threat. Many unknown and uninvited people came or are coming into the National Assembly complex and we felt we shouldn’t take this lightly.
“From today we have to find a temporary solution to support the security arrangement here. We will find a more permanent solution by the time the entire environment is remodelled.”
He stated that being that the security of lives and properties was the key responsibility of both the executive and legislative arms of government, the House was already in collaboration with security agencies on the issue.
