Title:Conflict between security agencies and their impact on national security: the case of Nigeria
Author:Oche, OgabaISNI
Periodical:Nigerian Journal of International Affairs (ISSN 0331-3646)
Geographic term:Nigeria
Subjects:national security
Abstract:In the recent past, Nigeria has experienced clashes between security services. Although such clashes are not common occurrences, they constitute serious grounds for concern given the fact that they affect institutions whose responsibilities involve the maintenance of law and order. The causes of such clashes include issues of morality and propriety, justice, rights, basic human needs, identity and the distribution of values. The effects include the erosion of professionalism, the undermining of law and order, as well as weakened security at the individual, group and national levels. The recommendations proffered cover the formulation of policy to eradicate the problem, the enhancement of professionalism among personnel of security agencies, and enhanced legislative oversight of the security sector.
