Security chiefs in the country are benefiting from the protracted security crisis in the country including the war against insurgency in the northeast, killer herdsmen crisis in the northwest and northcentral and kidnappings in the south.
A member of the House of Representatives, Fatuhu Mohammed made the allegations while the House was debating the security situation in the country. While he said President Muhammadu Buhari should be held responsible as the chief security officer, he added: “we have to look at our structural problem.”
He also called for better oversight by the National Assembly, stating that: “When it is appropriation period, we don’t take things very seriously. These people will come, present their budgets, and move on and we give money to them. There is no oversight. How do you expect us to checkmate them?”
Mohammed alleged: “It is business. They know there is no military coup. The only way they can make money is through this. How will they want the security issues to end? I don’t understand what is happening in this country.”
Commenting, Chairman of the House Committee on Police Affairs, Usman Kumo, on his part called for the removal of the NSA and the defence minister.
He said: “If the President means well for this country, and if we are really trying to look for a solution, he has to immediately sack the National Security Adviser. Two, he has to remove his Minister of Defence.”
