Latest news: 14 Threats The Nigerian Military is Confronting Nationwide

General Gabriel Olonisakin
Latest gist as the Nigeria Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Abayomi Olonisakin, has revealed that the Nigerian military is confronting no fewer than 14 security threats across the country.
Report revealed that Olonisakin, who was at the UN headquarters in New York for the Second Chiefs of Defence Conference, alongside other chiefs of
defence staff from all over the world, disclosed this at a reception organised for him by the Permanent Mission of Nigeria to the UN
“By my estimation, we have about 14 security threats that we are confronting, ranging from terrorism, insurgency, kidnapping, cultism, to issues linked to armed robbery,” he stated.
“We are handling operations in all the geo-political zones of the country, we have, of course operations down South and taking charge of militancy and oil theft; we also have that in Lagos.
“But the major one is the one in the Northeast, which is ‘Operation Lafiya Dole’ which of course since we came on board, we have stepped up the game.
“Right now, we have been able to decimate Boko Haram terrorists, but what they are doing right now is hitting soft targets through suicide bombers.
“We realised that to mitigate this particular menace is not only about the military.
So we need to carry the whole nation along to be able to address that.”
Olonisakin revealed that the military high command had met with other stakeholders to encourage the populace to provide them with necessary intelligence in order to mitigate incidences of suicide bombings saying the command had realised that intelligence was vital to handling the menace of suicide bombings.
“We are working alongside the DSS – Department of State Services, the Police, and the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corp,” he continued.
“We are also ensuring that the civil authority is put in place; places that the military had taken over, we encourage the Police and Civil Defence to come on so they can provide civil authority for displaced people to move in.”
