Security operatives also entitled to human rights – Group to Nigerians

A group has sued for continuous support from members of the public as the Nigerian military intelligence and security agencies continue their battle against terrorism and other forms of criminalities in the country.

While advising against comments and tendencies capable of demoralising law enforcement operatives, the group reminded the public that the men and women in uniform are also entitled to the right to life, including other fundamental human rights.

The Citizens United Against Subversion (CUAS) commended the Armed Forces of Nigeria (AFN), the Department of State Services (DSS), the Nigeria Police, para-military and other relevant security agencies for addressing substantially the security challenges confronting the nation.

This was disclosed in a statement signed by Dr Abu Mallam and Mrs Chinonyelum Ogundele, the National Coordinator and Secretary, respectively.

The group argued that the commitment of state security operatives could be felt in the drastic reduction in violent activities of kidnappers, unknown gunmen, and bandits/terrorists.

While it also recalled the recent security advice given by the United States embassy, it added that even before the said alert, the DSS had given warnings in the past, urging the general public to report suspicious activities to law enforcement agencies and as well be vigilant.

The statement read in part: “We are aware that our troops and security operatives have continued to record commendable gains in the last few months, and this is due largely to the fact that operations have been intelligence-driven.

No wonder plans by terrorists to attack the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and contiguous states were nipped in the bud, even as arrests are continuing on a regular basis, with accompanying disruptions of active and sleeper cells.

For instance, while the Military is charged with the responsibility of defending the territorial integrity of the nation, the Department of State Services (DSS), on the other hand, is the foremost lead domestic intelligence agency in the country.

The DSS is also charged with the collection of intelligence for good governance and national safety, apart from ensuring the protection of the State and its officials, citizens, critical resources and infrastructure from domestic threats. It also prevents and protects the State against national security threats.

The Police, on their part, are the lead agency in internal security, enforcing and maintaining law and order across the length and breadth of the country.”
