Renowned security expert, Ona Ekhomu has advised the Federal Government to set up a special task force to investigate and rescue the 110 schoolgirls kidnapped from Dapchi, Yobe State on February 19 by Boko Haram terrorists.
The matrix organization, which should report to the National Security Adviser (NSA), should include credentialed and accomplished investigative personnel from the Nigeria Police Force, the Military Provost, Department of State Services, the National Intelligence Agency, the Federal Ministry of Justice, the Civilian JTF and academia.
Ekhomu who is President of the Association of Industrial Security and Safety Operators of Nigeria (AISSON) advocated the appointment of an intelligent tough-minded investigator to head the special task force. “This leader must be reputed as brilliant, innovative and upright,” he said.
