Nigeria’s President directs security agencies to share intel

Nigeria’s President, Bola Tinubu on Monday said it is vital that his nation’s security agencies share intelligence.

Failure to share he said would be counterproductive in the fight against terrorism.

Nigeria is facing a complex security challenge.

Banditry and kidnapping remain a headache in the northwest, herds-farmers clashes have continued in the north central and security forces have often clashed with secessionists in the country’s southeast.

The country’s southwest has also seen cases of kidnap for ransom while Islamic State for West Africa Province or ISWAP terrorists are still being contained in the northeast.

Mr. Tinubu’s comments came after he took a tour of the new Office of Nigeria’s National Security Adviser and facilities at the National Counter Terrorism Centre (NCTC), in Abuja.
