2018/11/10- The Nigerian Defence Headquarters has appealed to the public to always furnish the force with useful information to boost intelligence gathering in the fight against Boko Haram.
Brig.-Gen. John Agim, the Acting Director of Information, Defence Headquarters Abuja, made the appeal on Thursday in Calabar during a two-day capacity building workshop for Forum of Spokespersons of Security and Response Agencies.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the theme of the workshop is ‘Global Terrorism and Crisis of Narratives: The Challenges of Nigeria Security Spokespersons’.
Agim called on Nigerians to always give useful information that could help security agencies in the fight against insurgency, militancy and sundry crimes in Nigeria.
According to him, security is not a sole prerogative of the military, adding that the Nigerian public must contribute their quota in the fight.
“Any Nigerian who is up to the age of 25 and has never given useful information to any security agency before is not doing the right thing.
“We need useful information from Nigerians to tackle Boko-Haram, militancy and other criminals in the country.
“Security is not exclusive to security agencies, Nigerians must assist us because it is not the army that is fighting insurgency but Nigerians.
