It then means that our immigration department should be seriously reactivated. But I will tell everyone that PENCOM is sending retirees to early graves , leading to disloyalty. Find out what you are left with on disengagement with AFTER 35YRS Let us secure our borders with drones and well trained immigration officers instead of waiting for Niger Republic to do so for us.

That's almost impossible. Unless Nigeria will underwrite the cost. The area is bigger Nigeria and links Libya. This is where landmass is a huge disadvantage. My people keep paryer.we need paryers Blocking access to weapons & ammunition will help decrease insecurity not only in Zamfara but the entire country. This is where actionable Intelligence & technical equipment such as long Endurance Enterprise Drones, Balloons etc are needed. Niger will not corporate. Do something

Two-thirds of Nigeria's security & economic problems originate from Niger Republic …the unjust regime is not blocking porous borders, it is opening it up with express train line to Maradi.. 2. Each border spans over a 2000 yards wide, while the border posts are so insignificant (small sized) as well as the personnels compared to the size of the border. I have been to Maigatari border Post (Jigawa state) with Niger Republic. The border spans till almost Yobe state

1. this is almost impossible. It's like saying if we can get the police to be on every road in the country then we can curb crime. Niger Republic has about 7 or 8 border posts; and she shares 5 border posts with Nigeria out of the 7 or 8 border posts. Nigeria's porous borders will always be its biggest security nightmare. We actually need that border wall more than Trump wanted it for the US. This should be priority number one for any government in Nigeria.

Is it the duty of Niger Republic to block all access or for Buhari and the North to block northern borders.

Sat, 15 Jan 2022 07:32:37 GMT T he member representing Gummi/Bukkuyum federal constituency of Zamfara State, Suleiman Abubakar Gumi, has said that blocking the supply of arms and ammunition from the Niger Republic will go a long way in tackling the rising menace of banditry in his state. Gumi said this on Friday while reacting to the recent killings and destruction of his constituency by bandits. Defence Chief: Why Nigeria won’t experience coup again He said, “If we can get the Niger Republic to block all access to all entry points, then what the bandits have will definitely depreciate, and naturally, the fight will cease.” He said Governor Bello Matawalle recently went to the Niger Republic as part of a strategy to cut the supply of arms and ammunition into the state to tackle banditry, adding that Niger remains the main route for weapons proliferation. The lawmaker also emphasised the need to equip and engage more local vigilantes to assist in guarding the villages, adding that the military and police are already overstretched and can’t be everywhere. On the shutdown of telecommunication networks in Zamfara, the lawmaker said the action was successful to a great extent as that helped in blocking the activities of informants, whom he said had always been a hindrance to the efforts of the security forces. He said there was the need for the federal government and the Nigerian army to take a holistic approach in addressing the menace of banditry, adding, “You cannot focus your attention on Zamfara when Sokoto and Kebbi are open. If your operations are in Zamfara, then you have to block centrally.” Dear Reader, Every day, we work hard to provide readers such as you with the most accurate, up-to-date, and comprehensive information.
