Nigeria will soon conclude investigations into the July 5 terrorist attack on the correctional centre in Kuje, Abuja where over 600 detained criminals were let loose.

According to the National Security Adviser (NSA), Babagana Monguno the government punish those who, by the neglect of duty, allowed the terrorists to get away.

Monguno, who spoke to State House correspondents after the National Security Council (NSC) meeting, also said the NSC would implement new strategies to address the fast-spreading insecurity and terrorist attacks nationwide as Nigerians are growing “tired” of the menace and are now turning to self-help.

Monguno who spoke alongside the Inspector General of Police, Usman Baba, said the President is well aware of the dire security challenges the country finds itself in at the moment.

However, he said the solution will not come from a single strategy.

“Members of the armed forces have made a commitment that in the coming weeks, they have already started working on a new strategy to deal with these snippets of violence,” he said.

“They have given their word, commitment to the President that there will be a change in momentum, regardless of the fact that there might be certain institutional limitations which they face. They have understood the enormity of responsibilities that they have.

“We are in a difficult situation. The council understands. The President understands. But there is no straight, cut-and-drive method around this unless we collectively fight it.

“People are getting tired and are beginning to gravitate into other means of self-help. But the truth is that help is rooted in everyone working for the other person.”

Citing last Friday night’s attack on the 7 Guards Battalion of the Nigerian Army Presidential Guards Brigade, the NSA argued that no country can win asymmetric warfare without the help of its citizens.

According to him, the Council has agreed on new strategies to curtail the menace, assuring that there will be a renewed momentum against terrorism.

“The various entities concerned have started working on these new strategies. They have also given their word to the President,” Monguno explained.
