Terrorism: Why We Need Int’l Cooperation-Defence Intelligence Chief

By Adedayo Said

The Chief of Defence Intelligence (CDI), Maj.-Gen. Samuel Adebayo, says the need for international cooperation in countering terror groups cannot be over-emphasised as terrorist groups leverage on foreign affiliations to sustain their franchise.

He said this in Abuja yesterday during the opening of the Defence Advisers and Attachés Annual Conference organised by the Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA) which commissioned a cyber operation cell, other modern operational equipment and projects that would make intelligence gathering easier.  

He said the activities of secessionist groups which threatened the corporate existence of Nigeria required collaborative action to surmount. 

Adebayo said the conference was to identify new lessons, discuss modalities for common challenges and strategize for the future, especially as the election year approached.

The National Security Adviser, Babagana Monguno, stressed the need to strengthen regional cooperation to further ensure the success of ongoing military operations.
