“In the area of border security, I initiated a meeting and led NIS delegation to engage NIMASA on improved blue border security.

“I am glad to tell you that a draft MOU to that effect is ready. We have also advanced NIS and FRONTEX collaboration on border security and migration management.

“About a week ago, the Service graduated its first set of 61 special female armed squad from our training school in Ahoada, Rivers State to join in patrolling the nation’s borders. We shall continue to do our best in this regard within the limits of our capacity,” he said.
