CSO Advocates For Covert Intelligence Efforts Against Terrorism Financing

The Civil Society Groups for Good Governance (CSGGG) has issued a call for strategic intelligence gathering and increased collaboration among security agencies in Nigeria to combat alleged collusion in terrorism financing. 
General Christopher Musa, the Chief of Defence Staff, previously revealed that some Boko Haram terrorists in the North-East were orchestrating attacks in collaboration with prison warders.
In a press briefing in Abuja, Chief Ogakwu Dominic, the president of CSGGG, expressed concern about the public nature of these allegations, emphasizing the need for discreet engagement between the military and the Nigerian Correctional Service (NCoS).
Dominic stressed the importance of coordination and information management in counterterrorism efforts, suggesting that public disclosure could hinder covert operations crucial for success.
Dominic urged General Musa to refer to the National Crisis Management Doctrine (NCMD) for coordinated crisis management. While acknowledging the swift response of the Minister of Interior, Mr. Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, in launching an investigation into NCoS officials, Dominic also commended the initiative to release 4,000 inmates, alleviating pressure on NCoS manpower for improved performance.
He called on President Bola Tinubu to support the infrastructural development of the nation’s correctional facilities, emphasizing the need for modernization in line with international best practices. Additionally, Dominic urged collaboration on de-radicalization efforts, highlighting the NCoS’ exclusive role in this regard.
Addressing the National Assembly, Dominic called for a reconsideration of their approach to security issues, emphasizing the importance of avoiding public disclosure of sensitive information that could contribute to insecurity.
He asserted that security is a collective responsibility, urging collaboration among various stakeholders, particularly between the military and the NCoS, to safeguard the nation from potential embarrassment.
