IGP Alkali Speaks About Insecurity

According to Alkali, Nigeria’s internal security is being harmed by unhealthy inter-agency rivalry among security agencies such as the army, the SSS, and the police.

Nigeria’s internal security, according to Inspector-General of Police Usman Baba Alkali, is being harmed by unhealthy inter-agency rivalry among security forces such as the army, the SSS, and the police, among others.

According to him, the practice has worried a wide range of Nigerians throughout the years, but he said that it was not unique to Nigeria.

Inter-agency frictions, he recognized, posed a significant threat to internal security and national cohesiveness.

“It accounts for budgetary wastage, duplication of functions, mutual suspicion, and encroachment on each other’s legal and operational space by competing agencies.”

This was said by the police chief during the commencement of a retreat on ‘Strengthening Interagency Collaboration and Organizational Effectiveness for the Ministry of Police Affairs and Related Agencies’ in Abuja on Monday.

The Minister of Police Affairs, Muhammad Dingyadi, warned during the occasion that the rate of violent crimes and secessionist agitations in some sections of the country had reached unacceptable levels.

He remarked that the country’s violent crimes and agitations had escalated into attacks on security forces and other symbols of authority.

The minister explained that the need to emplace sustainable measures to tackle the security challenges threatening the peace, security, growth and development in parts of the country reaffirmed the importance of the retreat.

Mr Dingyadi added that the increasingly sophisticated spate of violent crimes necessitated deploying available security assets, conflict resolution mechanisms, and other peace-building measures to enhance internal security arrangements in the country.

He expressed the belief that the retreat would give leverage to critique the functionality of the various departments and agencies of the police.

“The retreat will also bring to fore the state of our border security and implications of poorly policed borders on internal security.

“Attention will also be focused on pivotal policing departments, Intelligence, Operations, Research and Planning, ICT and other key segments of policing arrangements.

“This is to engender a rebirth of new security architecture to meet global best policing standard practices,” said the police affairs minister.
