The house of representatives is yet to reach a consensus on the subject of foreign machineries to assist the exiting security operatives in tackling insurgency and other forms of insecurity ravaging the country.


Chairman house committee on customs and excise duties, Leke Abejide, speaking during an interview, argued that involving machineries in local security challenges may compromise the integrity of the country, exposing Nigeria to external attacks.


The lawmaker who had earlier opposed the motion to involve machinery in national security, argued that empowering the local government and redefining security structure to focus on grass root activities will adequately address the issue of insecurity.


In the same vein, a retired assistant director, internal security Adams Abuh also explained that the key to unravelling the deteriorating security situation in the country will be to decentralize security, by focusing on activities at the grass root, to quickly nip brewing insurgency in the bud.
