Why Does Jonathan Use Israeli Bodyguards? by TheImp: 7:02pm On Jul 28, 2014
At an event months at the Hilton some months back, i happened to be around the viscinity and when the President's entourage came in, i couldn't help but notice some middle eastern guys among his security team, on asking around i was told they were Israeli security contractors brought in by the late Gen Azazi when he was NSA . Tried to take some picures but a SSS agent nearby spotted me and got me to delete the pics promptly.
Now with the prevailing security situation, How can the citizens presume to trust our much maligned security agents if our president does not trust them enough

Trying to take pics near the president could get you shot or at least maimed.
@op its his right to pick his guards, you are right about Gen Azazi bringing em in after police HQ blasts

I would use swiss guards if I were in his shoes! But if he trusts Isreali more, am ok with that. Reminds me of Okonkwo and Ikemefuna

Here are excerpts from the 2011 Vanguard article
Indications emerged yesterday that following the August 26 suicide bombing of the United Nations House in Abuja, which is the second of such devastating attacks inside the federal capital territory, the seat of power, President Goodluck Jonathan has approved the deployment of Israeli Security experts to supervise the security of Aso Rock.

Saturday Vanguard gathered that the decision of the President which was deliberated at length by the National Security Council headed by the National Security Adviser, General Owoye Andrew Azazi, Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Oluseyi Petirin, Chief of Army Staff, Lt. General Azubuike Ihejirika, Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Mohammed Dikko Umar, DG SSS, Mr. Ekpeyong Ita, Inspector General of Police, Hafiz Abubakar Ringim and the Chief of Naval staff, Vice Admiral Ola Sahad Ibrahim, was eventually agreed upon as terrorism attacks have shown that international cooperation was needed to tackle the threat.
