He said this while lamenting the insecurity in the north after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday.
He told newsmen that the security chiefs need to be provided with more resources after which they should be fired if things do not get better.
“I think we must tell ourselves the truth that the security situation in the country, especially in the northern part of the country, requires that we give much more resources to the security agencies.
“If after we provide some supports and someone is found short of expectations, he should be shown the way out if he refuses to go. This is because the lives of Nigerians are so precious and therefore must be more important than any other considerations or sentiments,” he said.

There have been protests in different states of the north over the spate of attacks by bandits and terrorists. The service chiefs were called into an emergency meeting with President Buhari last week after which Babagana Monguno, the National Security Adviser, said the service chiefs risk being sacked if things do not get better.
However, bandits struck at Katsina, killing many, after the meeting.
