Tinubu Assures of Commitment to Eliminate Terrorism, Cybercrimes, Others

PRESIDENT BOLA TINUBU

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has asked the Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI, America’s security service, to strengthen the collaboration between it and Nigeria’s law enforcement agencies. He made the call when he received the visiting FBI Director, Christopher Asher Wray, at the State House in Abuja. The FBI is not just the domestic intelligence and security service of the United States of America, it is also the country’s principal federal law enforcement agency. President Tinubu said the government was committed to improve the tempo on the war against terrorism and cybercrime in Nigeria.

A statement released by Ajuri Ngelale, Special Adviser to the President on Media & Publicity, said President Tinubu described the presence of the FBI Director alongside his team in Nigeria as a recognition of the enduring partnership between Nigeria and the United States in the fight against financial crimes and terrorism.

Tinubu said ”It is an honour for me to receive Director Christopher Wray, the leader of an organisation that has demonstrated consistent procedural sophistication and a reputation for excellence over several years. Your visit conveys the importance of Nigeria and Nigerian partnership in the work of America’s law enforcement institutions and vice-versa. For us, it is a recognition of what stage we are at, who we are, and the level of interest both countries share in eliminating crimes locally and globally.”

He told the FBI Director that his administration has prioritised education as a tool against poverty, which is generally believed to be a driver of criminal activities.

”We are working hard to eliminate terrorism, cybercrimes, sextortion, and I am glad that we have a good number of agencies that are involved in reducing these crimes to the barest minimum, and they are also well represented at this meeting,” the President said.

Noting that no single country can combat financial crimes in isolation, President Tinubu called on the United States to support developing countries with the requisite technology and knowledge transfer required to combat complex international crimes.

Christopher Asher Wray, FBI Director, in his earlier remarks said he was in the country to enhance the “outstanding partnership” that exists between the government of Nigeria and the government of the United States.

Wray hailed President Tinubu for supporting the growing partnerships between various agencies of government and the FBI in order to protect the citizens of both countries.

”We appreciate the President’s vision in countering terrorism in the region, which is a dangerous threat, not only to the countries in the region but also to the United States.

”We appreciate your vision in re-engineering the role of the Office of the NSA to effectively coordinate efforts on counterterrorism, and this has already started to bear fruits in terms of the success you are recording against ISIS in West Africa and other terrorist groups.

”We appreciate your support and collaboration on cyber-enabled crimes and sextortion, which has unfortunately resulted in a few tragic deaths in the United States.

”I want to assure you of our support whether it is on counterterrorism, cyber-enabled crimes, kidnapping, joint investigations, and intelligence sharing. Our relationship with Nigeria is a very important one,” Wray concluded.

Security chiefs who attended the meeting include the National Security Adviser, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu; Inspector-General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun; Director-General of the Department of State Services (DSS), Yusuf Magaji Bichi; the Chairman of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), Brigadier-General Mohamed Buba Marwa (Rtd); Chief of Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA), Major-General Emmanuel Undiandeye; Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Olanipekun Olukoyede; and the National Coordinator of the National Counter Terrorism Centre (NCTC), Major-General Adamu Laka.
