Security agencies infiltrated, working for criminals – Gov Mutfwang cries out

Plateau State Governor, Celeb Mutfwang has alleged that Nigeria’s security agencies have been infiltrated.

Mutfwang said a lot of security operatives are agents to criminals, adding that they also ‘compromise their colleagues’.

The governor urged President Bola Tinubu to direct security agencies to ensure due diligence during their recruitment process.

In a statement he signed, Mutfwang said: “Let me also say that the security agencies have been infiltrated, this is the fact we must confront as a nation.

“There are many people in the security agencies who should not be there, they are agents of these criminals and sometimes they even compromise their colleagues, that is why you have a lot of ambushes when these security agencies are going on operations.

“Therefore, the president must give a very firm directive to the security agencies that in the ongoing recruitment processes, diligence must be taken, diligence must be observed to ensure that wrong elements are not recruited into the security agencies.

“There must also be a mechanism to be able to fish out these bad eggs within the security services, it is only when we do that that we can ensure that there is professionalism and discipline.”

Mutfwang said security forces confiscated common tools such as machetes from locals.

The governor called for a critical review of the recruitment process and a mechanism to weed out “bad eggs” within the security services.
