IPOB agitation, terrorism require kinetic, non-kinetic approaches – VP Shettima

Vice President, Senator Kashim Shettima has concluded that both kinetic and non-kinetic approaches must be explored in tackling the various security challenges across the country.

Shettima voiced his opinion this at the graduation ceremony of the National Institute for Security Studies’ Executive Intelligence Management Course 16 which was held in Abuja.

According to Shettima, “the agitation by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in the South-East, the banditry in the North-Central, and terrorism in the North-East and North-West need to be tackled using not just a kinetic approach but also non-kinetic means”.

While he attributed the current insecurity in parts of the country to poverty and unemployment, the Vice President harped on the need to improve governance in the country.

Shettima called for the unity of the country, just as he assured that the administration of President Bola Tinubu is determined to bring development to the country, canvassing for support from Nigerians.

Also speaking at the event, the Director General of the Department of State Services (DSS), hinted that the agency will soon unveil weapons produced by its personnel.

According to him, the DSS will soon begin to “produce what it eats, and eat what it produces.”
