As Nigeria continue to factor ways to tackle insecurity, a civil society organization chief and security expert Sunday Attah has called for effective collaboration among security operatives to tackle the spate of insecurity in the country.

Attah made the call on Monday at a press conference in Abuja stressing that synergy among security operatives was crucial for addressing insecurity in the country.

Attah, while backing the call by the NSCDC boss said such collaboration will make security operatives tackle challenges of insecurity as indivisible entity; noting that no single security agency can do the work alone.

Attah said under Audi, the NSCDC has metamorphosed as a key player in the nation’s security architecture, urging the security chiefs to collaborate with the Corps and take advantage of the experiences its personnel have garnered from various training programmes.

“Other security chiefs should as a matter of facts not shy away but consult the Commandant General of Civil defense corps, Audi who is grounded in internal security affairs”.

“He is a man who have shown professionalism and have written his name in the sand of time as one whose transparent and able leadership has changed some narratives in the mechanism of internal security”.
