National Security Adviser (NSA), Major General Babagana Monguno (Rtd), disclosed this to State House Correspondents at the end of the National Security Council meeting, held in the State House on Tuesday.

According to Monguno, President Buhari also approved a ban on all mining activities in the state to curb the rising rate of insecurity.

According to Monguno, as part of strategies to douse tension and restore order in all parts of the country, the intelligence and security communities have been mandated to go after all non-state actors, whose activities have been fueling chaos, for prosecution.
