Oluwo lauds military collaboration in fight against insecurity



Sanwo Olu felicitates Oba of Lagos at 80

In a statement issued by his press secretary, Alli Ibrahim, on Tuesday, the Oluwo expressed that this joint approach has significantly contributed to curtailing insecurity in the country.

The royal father noted that the inter-agency collaboration has facilitated intelligence gathering and information dissemination within the military.

He expressed optimism that, with the enhanced cooperation among the personnel at the battlefront, insecurity would diminish substantially in the coming months.

The statement read, “Nigeria’s security architecture has notably improved through the suppression of terrorism and banditry, primarily due to the appointment of competent security chiefs. The synergy and inter-agency collaboration, particularly in intelligence gathering and information dissemination, have played a significant role in controlling insecurity.

“I express my special commendation to the Commander In Chief of the Armed Forces, President Ahmed Tinubu, for appointing capable hands as Service Chiefs to revamp Nigeria’s security framework.”

He entrusted the security responsibility to the most proficient individuals in the military and the police, allowing them to execute their duties without interference. Today, we are witnessing the results of these dedicated Nigerian patriots.

“Yesterday, I witnessed the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. General Taoreed Lagbaja, in Sokoto, engaging with and celebrating Christmas with troops of the operation Hadarin Daji at Gingiya Barracks. The approach of these chiefs in confronting insecurity is exceptional, reflecting readiness, dedication, commitment, and loyalty to the nation. I doubt if we have ever witnessed such a remarkable display before. The morale is high. They deserve our prayers, appreciation, and unwavering support.”

The Oluwo of Iwo also urged Nigerians to assist the security personnel in intelligence gathering by providing valuable information that could aid in preventing attacks, while calling on the government to enhance welfare packages for security operatives in the country to maintain their high morale.
