Why Nia, Dss, Efcc Will Continue To Clash – Nsa by Islie: 7:35am On Apr 17
By Ismail Mudashir



The National Security Adviser (NSA) Major General Babagana Monguno (rtd) said the country’s intelligence agencies would continue to clash unless the National Security Agencies Decree 1986 is amended.

Monguno was quoted in a report of the Senate ad-hoc committee that probed the clash between officials of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Department of State Service (DSS) and Nigeria Intelligence Agency (NIA) last year.

The agencies clashed last year when EFCC operatives attempted to arrest Mr Ayodele Oke, a former DG of NIA and Mr Ita Ekpeyong, a former DG of the DSS.

The NSA while expressing concern over the lack of unity and cooperation among intelligence agencies in the country said the situation has led to, “The current state of disjointedness and disharmony amongst sister agencies. This resulted due to the National Security Agencies Decree 1986; Cap 278, Cap 278 LFN section 14 01-2 which has stripped the NSA of the power to check the other Security Agencies that have now become independent of his office due to their now ‘easy’ access to the President. Thus, there is a desperate need to streamline the Agencies and make them answerable to the NSA.”

Monguno told senators that the President was aware of the state of things and also presented evidences of instances where his duties were usurped due to lack of discipline exhibited by Security Agencies.

He disclosed that he was not aware of the EFCC chairman’s move to arrest any of the former intelligence chiefs until after the media reports and that the resistance made by the Security Agencies during the arrest cast some aspersions.

The Senate had while considering the report of the panel chaired by Senator Francis Alimikhena (APC, Edo) resolved to initiate the amendment of the act with a view to giving powers of control to the Coordinator on National Security over these agencies on behalf of the President.

This wouldn't have been a problem if the president is effectively in charge. The clashes we've seen is simply as a result of the inability of the president to take charge of situations decisively.

Some can argue that the president has only given the agencies a free hand to operate without interfering in their duties, if that is so, that may mean he believes institutions should be able to use applicable laws to resolve their grievances without having to always try to please whoever the president is.

But in develop countries all agencies have their specific roles to play and also has its jurisdiction

but in naija --- U will c Police Officers checking Vehicles particulars
--- ICPC, EFCC, NIA --- with similar duties to perform

My opinions are these conflict will continue to happening unless security agencies are being given specific roles

Says who? The rivalry between the CIA and FBI gave birth to the DHS.

This is where I expected the Senate to come in and try to meet the sister agencies so as to amend the ACT.

Zombie get the message,it has nothing to do with the President,He says the NSA Act must be amended by the Senate. Mr man you are trying to act smart but not been clever go and read section 115 of the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 as amended. It is almost impossible to amend the NSA Act.
