A Security Expert, Dr Jimoh Ahmed Ayinla, has cautioned the federal government against engaging mercenaries in the fight against Boko Haram insurgents and bandits.

Ayinla, a security expert urged the government to weigh the consequential effects of inviting and relying on mercenaries in the fight against terrorism, insurgency and Boko Haram .

Speaking during an interaction with journalists in Ilorin, the Kwara state capital, Ayinla, who lectures at the Kwara State College of Education, Ilorin, warned that as a sovereign nation, Nigeria’s integrity should not be compromised for whatever reason.

Rather, he said the government should provide more modern war equipment and better welfare packages for the members of the Nigerian Armed Forces as incentives to further motivate them to tackle the insurgents headlong

Ayinla added: “It is when all these are religiously carried out that the menace will be drastically reduced. Nigeria is a sovereign nation, its integrity should not be compromised to any external forces. The government should rather provide modern war equipment and proper welfare packages to the armed forces.”

He admonished Nigeria’s security chiefs to stop unfolding strategies to be employed in combating the menace, adding that “rather, urgent steps are needed in reappraising the present strategies which could not bring the required result. There is the need to map out more effective and efficient methods of fighting the Boko Haram and other related crimes in Nigeria. “
