|NATFORCE Denies Defying Nsa's Ban On It's Activities by PeterOnu(m): 1:51pm On Nov 14, 2021|
The National Taskforce on Prohibition of Illegal Importation of Small Arms, Ammunitions and Light Weapons (NATFORCE) has dismissed allegations that it is still carrying out its activities without any hindrance despite the order of the National Security Adviser (NSA), Maj. Gen. Babagana Monguno (rtd).
The NSA, in June this year, had directed the immediate dismantling of all illegal security outfits across the country, and cautioned individuals, organisations and foreign partners on the activities of NATFORCE, which he said was illegally formed as a task force to combat illegal importation and smuggling of small arms, ammunition and light weapons into Nigeria.
However, Dr. Baba Mohammed, the Director General of NATFORCE, in a statement, said that consequent upon the NSA’s directive, he had directed, vide an internal memo dated 12th June,2021, and another reminder on 12th November, 2021 to all zonal state directors, prohibiting all activities at the commands.
The statement added that copies of the earlier statement made were also forwarded to the office of the NSA, DSS, the Police and all those concerned., and said the allegation that it had been recruiting personnel in defiance of the Federal Government directive are wrong or could have occurred from miscreants and those who could be impersonating Dr Baba Muhammed.
Dr. Baba Muhammad added that following the NSA proscription, series of warnings also followed against staff who may be found culpable for fraud, cheating and illegal operations, with threats that the full wrath of the law will be deployed on wanting staff.
He said NATFORCE is still awaiting to hear a positive response from the two chambers empowered to make laws for the country i.e. the National Assembly, which will provide the needed legislative backing to properly define the responsibilities of the taskforce and set legal guidelines for its operations across the federation.
