It organized the event in collaboration with Transparency International Defence Security Programme and supported by Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
It said 2021 witnessed over 935 attacks and that the number might increase in 2022 if proactive measures are not taken by the federal government.
The body decried the state of insecurity, lamenting that the nation’s security architecture was collapsing as terrorists now operate with reckless abandon.
CISLAC Executive Director, Auwal Ibrahim Musa Rafsanjani, was represented by a board member, Barrister Oke Adesina.
