The Senate on Wednesday grilled the National Security Adviser, Maj.-Gen. Babagana Monguno (retd.), after which the chamber resolved to approve more funds for the Office of the NSA to address the spate of insecurity in the country.
Monguno was invited to brief the lawmakers on the “proliferation of firearms, spate of killings by terrorists and kidnapping by hoodlums across the country.”
The NSA, who was led into the chamber by the Special Adviser to the President on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Senator Ita Enang, was grilled behind closed doors for about three and a half hours.
Emerging from the interaction, President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, said, “He answered questions from distinguished senators bordering on security — insurgency, terrorism, kidnapping, co-ordination of the security agencies and the general killings in the country.
