Nuhu Ribadu has revealed a plan to give the police full control of internal security has been initiated by him.
NAIJA NEWS NG reports that this new development will prevent the military from intervening in internal security issues .
Ribadu disclosed this while presenting a paper at the ongoing annual conference of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) in Abuja on Wednesday, August 30.
The NSA who was represented by Anthony Oluborode, a special adviser in the legal department of the office of the NSA, stated that achieving this goal would help the army focus better on external security and terrorism.
“National security is a collective effort where all ministries, departments, agencies, civil society groups and citizens have to work collaboratively to ensure a secure nation.
“Community support is also critical for the success of curbing insecurity.
“The goal is to get the police to take full charge of internal security without having to invite the military to wade into the internal security of the country so that they can focus on external security.”
