The governor told the officers that tackling security challenges requires intelligence-sharing and cooperation of all agencies.

The Kaduna Governor, warned that addressing insecurity in one state will push outlaws to others.

El-Rufai said relevant organs must not only establish the identities, plans and locations of criminals, but disrupt their capacity to organise and hit citizens.

According to him, “It is also very important to ensure that prompt and coordinated action becomes the default response of the Armed Forces and the Police to the profusion of actionable intelligence that is already available.”

He stressed that the DSS’ vital role was to make information available to the Police and Armed Forces “for the total defeat of these dangerous insurgents”.
