Inter-Agency Cooperation in Combating Terrorism in Nigeria: Enhancing Existing Instruments and Frameworks in the Security Services

  • U-E Ogbeide


In recent times, terrorism has become one of the most dangerous threats to
peace and order nationally and globally. It is so pervasive that no country on
earth can claim immunity from its violent acts of bombing, shooting, armed
robbery, kidnapping, hostage-taking and bank robbery. This paper examines
this global human phenomenon through the analysis of its various definitions, its nature and consequences. Based on the analysis, the paper proffers a ten-point policy recommendation for enhancing the existing instruments and frameworks in the security services that would foster interagency cooperation in combating terrorism in Nigeria.
