President Muhammadu Buhari has met with security chiefs, including other managers in the security value chain, where he commended them on recent feats achieved in taming issues of banditry and kidnapping in the country.

Buhari, who presided over the Security Council Meeting today at his office in the Presidential Villa, told them to consolidate on the gains achieved so far before December this year.

Briefing State House correspondents of what transpired in the meeting, which lasted two hours, the Minister of Interior, Rauf AREGBESOLA, said the President was particularly pleased with the Nigeria Police Force for maintaining high professionalism during the conduct of gubernatorial elections in Ekiti, Osun and Anambra states.

Aregbesola also revealed that the Security Council Meeting deliberated on the activities of the National Taskforce on the Prohibition of Illegal Importation/Smuggling of Arms, Ammunition, Light Weapons, Chemical Weapons, and Pipeline Vandalism (NATFORCE), accusing it of impersonating security personnel in other similar agencies.

The former Governor of Osun stated that NATFORCE is not known by Nigerian law and, therefore, should disband itself or face a forceful ban.
