In spite of everything the Nigerian government and its security forces claim they are doing, the security situation in the country continues to deteriorate. The latest abductions of yet more school children in the northwest and the growing conflict between separatists and government forces in the southeast – a conflict that experts say could potentially become deadlier than the Boko Haram insurgency – are yet more examples of the deplorable state of security in Nigeria. But why have so many parts of Nigeria become so vulnerable to incessant violent attacks? Why is the state security response so inadequate and what can be done to end these attacks? Charles Aniagolu speaks to a panel of security and civil society analysts consisting of the Former Director of the Department of State Security, #MikeEjiofor, Programme Manager of Security and Defence and the Civil Society Legislative and Advocacy Centre, #SalaudeenHasheem and international defence analyst, #VinceOnyekwelu.
