The Coalition of Concerned Nigeria Security Experts (CCNSE) on Wednesday slammed the service chiefs for choosing to operate from Abuja, asking them to relocate to the Northeast, the epicentre of insecurity in Nigeria.
The coalition expressed concern that two months after the security chiefs assumed office, insecurity was getting worse.
Its national coordinator, Prof. Otedola Adekunle and national secretary, Dr Chris Aklo, challenged the security heads to stay up to their tasks, saying that two months was enough for them to make some visible impact in tackling insecurity
“Since the most anticipated appointments of the new service chiefs on January 26, 2021, we expected that by now, there would be at least a gradual turnaround in the security of the nation, however, it’s sad that the security situation keeps deteriorating each day with new dimensions to it,” they stated.

They decried that over 39 students of the College of Forestry in Kaduna State and several other kidnapped had been still in captivity.
“Instead of seeing concrete actions that could stamp out insecurity, all we hear is still rhetoric and promises. This is unacceptable. It’s actually not what Nigerians predict now. We want actions and practical steps towards defeating these monsters once and for all.
“President Muhammadu Buhari gave them six weeks from the date of their decorations to vary the sport within the safety sector, however, frankly speaking, things are getting worse. Nigerians are drained and want to see fast and urgent results too.”
