Abstract:
The spate of violent extremism and domestic terrorism in Nigeria since 2009 especially in Yobe and Borno States, had led to loss of thousands of lives and property warranting the deployment of Joint Task Force Operation RESTORE ORDER I (JTF ORO1). Concerns have been raised regarding the effectiveness of JTF ORO I in the containment of the situation in North Eastern Nigeria. The main objective of the study was to assess the effectiveness of JTF in Internal Security (IS) in Nigeria. It was on this premise that I undertook the study titled “Joint Task Force and Internal Security in Nigeria: An Evaluation of Operation RESTORE ORDER I”.

The study was essentially an exploratory research which integrate both quantitative and qualitative data. Data were collected from primary and secondary sources using both the field methods and document analysis. Primary data were collected through the use of questionnaires and unstructured interviews with various stakeholders. The secondary data were collected from books, official publications, unpublished materials, libraries among others. These data were verified and analysed empirically to arrive at deductions for necessary recommendations.

The study revealed that the employment of JTF in IS is operationally expedient in view of the nature of contemporary security challenges which is beyond the scope of the capability of a single service. Some of the identified challenges were lack of policy guidelines on asymmetric warfare, inadequate joint training, inadequate human and technical capability for intelligence gathering, deficient logistic support system, poor and antagonistic media operations. The prospects identified include full utilisation of the Nigeria Army Counter Terrorism/Counter Insurgency Centre (NA CT/COIN) for training of special forces for counter terrorism/counter insurgency and the establishment of the counter terrorism department in the office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA) among others.

Strategies to mitigate the challenges identified include formulation of National Security Policy, utilisation of the NA CT/COIN, procurement of modern technical and electronic equipment for intelligence gathering, establishment of joint logistic base and effective information operations. The study therefore recommended among others that the FGN should formulate national security policy, upgrade the NA CT/COIN to national special operations training establishment, acquire integrated technology driven intelligent gathering platforms to be coordinated by ONSA. Additionally, the DHQ should improve media-military relations and establish a joint logistic base to harmonise logistics. Further studies of these nature could focus on what roles stakeholders other than security forces should play in counter terrorism and counter insurgency.
