Omotoshola Sarimakin, Ondo

Chief of Defence Staff, CDS, General Lucky Irabor, yesterday, noted that there was no difference among security agencies in Nigeria, in the fight against insecurity.


Irabor said this when he led other Service Chiefs on a regional security visit to the 2 Division, Nigerian Army, Ibadan.

Other service chiefs present were the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru; Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Admiral Awwal Gambo, and Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Isiaka Amao.

The CDS said the visit was to demonstrate leadership by example, adding that the present security situation in the county required the armed forces to work together.


His words: “The armed forces of today demand that all the services work together, given that the threat that we face requires partnership and collaboration.

“The misconceived ideas or opinion in town by those who are uninformed is to the effect that the armed forces are working in disparity.

“We are here to interact with our troops and to let you know we are working as a team together with other security agencies and to let you know that disparity does not exist based on the directive of the President.

“The work is not over. There are still pockets of security challenges. The President and Commander-in-Chief, has directed us to ensure we bring peace and security to the country within the next few weeks. We are ready to fight the terrorists and flush them out of our country.

“We appreciate the state government’s support and efforts towards fighting insecurity in the state.”
