CDS advocates non-kinetic approach to tackling insecurity

The Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Christopher Musa, has advocated for the use of the non-kinetic approach in the ongoing fight against criminality in the country.

According to him, no fewer than 2,000 Boko Haram terrorists, through a non-kinetic approach, surrendered to the troops in the height of insurgency in the country.

Musa spoke while delivering a lecture at the opening of the National Security Course on `Psychological Operations and Strategic Communication in Abuja on Monday.

Represented by the Director of Training, Defence Headquarters, Rear Adm. Daupreye Matthew, Musa, however, said the military has up-scaled the use of hard and soft power in counter-insurgency operations to contain emerging and changing nature of adversaries.

He also advocated for individual case management, referral services, community-based peacebuilding, reconciliation, and reintegration to combat insecurity in the country.
