Mamman Daura reveals when Nigeria will be a safe country


Director General, Department of State Security Service (DSS), Alhaji Mamman Daura, has said that Nigeria will be a safe country only when all security agencies, both private and government-owned, begin to channel energies towards acquiring good knowledge as well as investing in intelligence gathering.

Daura stated this at the opening of a two-day workshop in Abuja on Security awareness for the National Executive and State Commanders of Vigilante Group of Nigeria.

He stressed that securing the country remained the cardinal priority of government and urged everyone to join the campaign.

The DG while speaking on “Contemporary Threats to National Security, Neighbourhood Check and Community, Money laundering, Illicit Drugs and Human Trafficking, Security Information” urged participants to take advantage of the workshop so that after listening to the experts, they would go back better equipped and grounded.

He said, “the role of private security organisations in the society is such an important role, hence the need for the government security organisations to exhibit willingness in impacting on them the required knowledge that would assist them in the discharge of their duties of ensuring a lasting peace in the country.

“It is only when all security agencies begin to channel their energies towards acquiring good knowledge as well as investing in intelligence gathering that is when we can begin to expect that the nation will remain a safer place.”
