Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr Boss Mustapha,has opined the long-standing reasons Nigeria is still grappling with insecurity.
According to Boss Mustapha, the territorial nature of Nigeria and the robustness of the military architecture makes it very difficult to deal with banditry and insecurity.
He posited that there should be massive reforms put in place in order to see the Nation tackle insecurity and the related menace.
Mustapha made his submission while he received the 24-member advisory committee on the reform of the armed forces and defence in Abuja.
Mustapha said, “Reforms are critical and difficult to implement, but the step taken by the ministry of defence is a right step in the right direction to address security challenges.
“The reasons we are still battling with insecurity is because we have not reformed our military architecture, and considering the territorial nature of our country, there is a need for the security rejig.
“I am committed to anything that will transform the armed forces and in any capacity, I will do my best for the necessary approval.’’
Meanwhile, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, the lawyer representing the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has intimated that the Department of State Services (DSS) failed to grant the British Consul and Dr Chukwuemeka Ezeife access to his client.
The court, in the explanation of Ejiofor, had extended the number of people who could visit Nnamdi Knau in the DSS detention center.
