SGF declared that the security agencies must take permission from them before carrying out an operation in their respective states.
The governors made this known on Monday, July 5, in Lagos, insisting that any law enforcement agency carrying out an operation in any of the states in the south must take permission from the state governor, who is the chief security officer of the state.
