A public analyst and security consultant, Alhaji Ahmed Adoke, has stated the need for the country’s security system to improve on intelligence gathering and implementation of security reports in order to combat incessant attacks by terrorists and other criminal elements terrorising the country.
The call was contained in a memo he sent to the committee of the House of Representatives on National Security and Intelligence investigating the recent attack on Kuje National Correctional Centre, Abuja.
In the memo, Alhaji Ahmed Adoke, who is the Managing Director / Chief Executive Officer of Duniya Security Agencies, berated the leadership of the country’s security Agencies for often treating intelligence reports with nonchalant attitude.
Alhaji Adoke who also expressed serious concern over the worsening security situation in the country and urged the country‘s security system to place more emphasis on preventive form of security than curative form.
While speaking on the recent attack on Kuje National Correctional Centre, he said the attack which caused a national embarrassment could have been averted if the echelon of security agencies in the country had acted on security tips at their disposal.
Alhaji Adoke further said the action of the country’s security top brass was rather complacent as he asked why the bandits that attacked the correctional facility passed through several checkpoints on motor-bike undetected.
The security expert blamed the success of the attack on the poor security at the Kuje Correctional Centre and called for adequate fortification of security at government facilities and other security prone areas, especially at this period of security challenges.
