The House of Representatives, yesterday, said the leakage of classified security documents through the social media and other sources is jeopardising the fight against insecurity in the country.

The House of Representatives, yesterday, said the leakage of classified security documents through the social media and other sources is jeopardising the fight against insecurity in the country.

It noted that the Federal Government made concerted efforts through the provision of human, material and financial resources in the fight against insecurity overtime.

However, the Green Chamber regretted that the leakage of classified documents and other acts of sabotage was disrupting intelligence gathering, causing misunderstanding among operatives involved in different operations against insecurity.

In a motion on the need to address ‘Leakage of Classified Security Documents to the Public’ during plenary, yesterday, Samuel Adejare regretted that the unfortunate situation was enabling jailbreaks, mass abductions, invasion of farms, animal rustling among others.

He noted that if such acts of sabotage were left unchecked, they might pose great risks to and ultimately imperil the country

The house, therefore, unanimously adopted the motion and mandated the committee on national security and intelligence to carry out a detailed investigation into the matter and report back within two weeks for further legislative action.
