‘Hire Foreign Mercenaries to Fight Insecurity’ – Lawmaker to FG

'Hire Foreign Mercenaries to Fight Insecurity' - Lawmaker to FG | Daily Report Nigeria

During a plenary session on Tuesday, Lawmaker Ahmed Jaha from Borno State urged the federal government to consider hiring foreign military mercenaries to assist in the fight against insecurity.

Jaha made the suggestion while contributing to a motion regarding the alleged murder of Onumegbu Ifeanyi by a naval officer in Rivers State.

Despite receiving enough funding allocations totaling N19 trillion over the past eight years, Jaha stated that security agencies have failed to effectively address the persistent violent attacks across the country.

Following the adoption of the motion, the House of Representatives directed the Nigerian Navy to conduct a thorough and impartial investigation into the circumstances surrounding Onumaegbu’s death and identify those responsible.

Furthermore, the Lawmakers called on the federal government to provide adequate support and compensation to the deceased’s family.

He said:

We can bring in mercenaries. It was attempted during President Goodluck Jonathan, they were about to finish Boko Haram. The new president (Muhammadu Buhari) was convinced, and he moved them out of the country and the insecurity kept on escalating to other parts of the country.

“We are going to organise a movement to present a position paper on the attempt to bring mercenaries to bring an end to insecurity since our security agencies have failed Nigerians.

“In as much as a substantial amount of money is not going to be allocated or will continue to be allocated to security agencies, insecurity will never come to an end in Nigeria.

“From 2015 to 2023, more than N19 trillion was allocated to security and security-related sectors in Nigeria. Whereas, we have an alternative.
