Meeting details between senators and the NSA, IGP, and service chiefs made public

Serum has it that Malam Nuhu Ribadu, the country's national security adviser, briefed members of the upper house of parliament on the outcomes of the security forces' attempts to rein in unrest.

The meeting of security leaders with the Minister of Finance, Wale Edun, was summoned last week by Senate President Godswill Akpabio, who requested the information from the National Security Agency ().

The recent wave of violence in several states and in the capital city of Abuja was something that Akpabio spoke about.

He conveyed the resolve of the Senate to step in and stop the rising tide of instability.

In a series of interviews with Nuhu Ribadu, the NSA, Minister of Interior Tunji Ojo, Minister of Defence Abubakar Badaru, his equivalents in Finance, and other service leaders emphasized that security agents' actions prevented any significant terrorist assault since President Bola Tinubu assumed office in May of last year.

[The NSA informed us that roughly 20 gun-running networks were demobilized, while over 5,000 military-grade firearms were confiscated and destroyed by government agencies,” an anonymous legislator told DAILY POST.

As a result of pressure from security officials, abduction and banditry have evolved into economic crimes, according to Ribadu. He hopes that this trend will soon come to a stop.

The congressman cited Ribadu's statement that the South-South portion of the country saw a marked uptick in oil output and that the South-East region had relatively calm conditions.

Additionally, the Chief of aviation Staff provided a superb description of how the aviation component of the fight supports the efforts of ground soldiers.

According to the legislator, “He mentioned how they killed two key leaders of bandits, Ali Kachalla and Yellow Janburos,” which has helped to stop the movement of bandits and supplies throughout states, particularly in the areas surrounding Niger, Zamfara, and Kaduna.

He also said that the Inspector General of Police had mentioned the eradication of criminals from Abuja's suburbs and the efforts of his personnel to thwart the plans of “one-chance” criminals in the nation's capital.

Although the majority of parliamentarians were pleased with their contributions, a few highlighted operational inefficiencies that needed fixing and asked the heads of the services to work together harmoniously for the best results.

It was instructed that the Minister of Finance release the monies as quickly as possible as they were due.
