‘Nigeria needs a comprehensive security approach’

A public affairs analyst, Iliyasu Gadu, has charged the Federal Government on a comprehensive approach to tackling insecurity.

Featuring last night on Trust TV’s political programme, Daily Politics, Gadu said: “We need to consider a comprehensive approach. What we have now really is just some sporadic and reactive approach by the government waiting for something to happen and then they deploy soldiers and that’s it.

“Now that we have internal security issues that have cut across states and the entire nation, we need to have an internal security organization force.

“Most countries have outfits like this that are trained in internal security operations. In Nigeria, we have about 400,000 policemen. Over 300,000 of those are deployed in doing things that are not their jobs. They’re busy guiding politicians. 

“We need to channel such manpower to a response that’ll take care of the security issues in the country.”
