Dapchi attack: Recruit more security operatives – PENGASSAN tells FG

The Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) has urged the Federal Government to recruit more people into security agencies.
PENGASSAN gave the advice in a communique in Lagos, signed by its Public Relations Officer, Mr Fortune Obi.
The union, after its National Executive Council (NEC) meeting, said that security agencies were already overstretched in curbing crime.
They condemned the attacks by Boko Haram insurgents, especially the recent abduction of 110 girls of Government Girls’ College, Dapchi, Yobe State.
The communique also said, “The Army and the Police should reduce the number of operatives attached to politicians and few influential people to boost those in their operational areas.
”We recognise the commitment of the security agencies in ensuring security of lives and properties within the country.
“The government through the various security agencies should ensure that the Dapchi girls and all those in captivity regain freedom and are re-united with their families.”
