NSA says Nigeria is dealing with abnormal security challenges
Speaking on the security of the country, the NSA noted that Nigeria is currently facing abnormal security challenges.
He said: “It is not easy to coordinate. Yes, all security agencies are supposed to be centrally coordinated but sometimes we have issues. But these issues are being addressed right now and that is probably why we are beginning to see some improvements.
“The truth is that we are dealing with a situation that is asymmetric, that is not normal, not conventional. In dealing with these problems there will be issues, inter-service issues, inter-agencies issues.
“My office has been trying to address in the last couple of weeks, hopefully, we should be able to see some improvements.”
However, Monguno said the government is looking into security challenges from outside the shores of the country.
