Speaking at the 2 Division Nigeria Army, Auditorium of Adekunle Fajuyi Canton­ment, Ojoo Ibadan, the Gar­rison Commanding Officer, of 2 Div. Nigeria Army, Maj. General. Anthony Omozoje, in his opening remarks of the 4-day training, main­tained that there should be a Foundation Documents for inter-agency operations.

The four-day event, which was declared opened on Mon­day 16th November 2020, by Maj. Gen.

Maj. Gen. Omozoje, in his analysis stressed the need for a foundation documents for all the security inter-agency in a joint task operation, not­ed that such documents will have in its contents the aims, objectives, and roles of each agencies clearly stated to avoid conflict of superiority among the officers.

According to Omozoje, the foundation documents, if ad­opted will express the details of who gives the order, who takes the charge, whenever there is inter agency’s oper­ations.

“Normally we all know that it’s the duty of the Cus­toms Officers to secure our borders, but we all works together in our borders to secure it from external ag­gressors, but we should know that border is the main con­stituency of our sister agency which are the Customs. This foundation documents I men­tioned earlier will go a long way in addressing our roles in any given inter-agencies operations, and all our ranks and files Officers will also key into the system, this I think will further boost our work­ing synergies.
