According to the Chief of Defense Staff, “the situation we find ourselves today, underscores a critical lesson for Nigeria – that security is a collective responsibility that must be fought, collectively. ”

In response to a question about the collaboration among security agencies, CG Musa highlighted the notable improvement in their relationships. He noted that “past issues of rivalry among services are now a thing of the past. The service chiefs are currently working collaboratively as a united front. This unity is essential, not only for effective internal operations but also to garner public trust and involvement,” he said, stressinh that a unified front among security forces is crucial for encouraging citizens to unite against common enemies such as terrorists, bandits, kidnappers, and other criminals.

As Nigeria grapples with the multifaceted challenges to its security, the collaborative efforts of security agencies and active public participation are deemed vital components of the collective strategy to address and overcome the current security landscape.
