The Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), General Lucky Irabor has said that old tools and military might alone cannot defeat asymmetric warfare like banditry, kidnapping and the Boko Haram insurgency.

Speaking at the Regimental Dinner organised in honour of the graduating students of Senior Course 43 of Armed Forces Command and Staff College, the CDS said the military had resolved to acquire new platforms and capability to address the nation’s security challenges.

He said long-term success against terrorism, insurgency and other internal security challenges required a whole-of-government approach and not just a military solution.

General Irabor noted that the involvement of the military in containing asymmetric security threats in the past few years had highlighted the need to acquire the new operational capability to deal with the emerging threats.
