Reps Probe Leak of Classified Documents

Reps Probe Leak of Classified Documents

Angered by a leak of crucial security information, the House of Representatives demanded a comprehensive inquiry into the suspected release of secret security materials to the public on Thursday.

This followed the approval of a resolution on the House floor by Rep. Samuel Adejare (APC-Lagos) on Thursday in Abuja.
The House then charged the Committee on National Security and Intelligence with conducting a thorough inquiry into the situation.

The committee was also instructed to report back to the House within two weeks for additional legislative action.
Adejare raised concern in his motion about the repeated occurrences of sensitive security papers being leaked to the public via various social media platforms, online print media, and other sources.

This, he claimed, was jeopardizing the country’s battle against insurgency, banditry, abduction, and other crimes.
He also stated that the Federal Government has made significant efforts in the battle against insecurity by providing people, material, and financial resources.

He said that the leakage of secret security papers, as well as other acts of sabotage, were creating intelligence failure, confusion, and a lack of cohesiveness.

According to him, this is primarily among operators participating in various operations in Nigeria against insurgency and other acts of terrorism.

The sad scenario, according to the legislator, was permitting additional acts of crime and criminality like as jailbreaks, mass abductions, agricultural invasions, and livestock rustling.

He stated that if such acts of sabotage go unchecked, they may endanger the lives of security officers and ultimately endanger the country.
