The Federal Government has said it will revive the War Against Indiscipline (WAI) Brigade for effective intelligence gathering and sharing.
The director-general of the National Orientation Agency, Mr Garba Abari, disclosed this at a workshop in Abuja, yesterday.
A statement issued by Deputy Director, Press, at NOA, Mr. Fidel Agu, said the agency was set to reposition the brigade for enhanced civil intelligence gathering towards an orderly and secure society in line with the change mantra of the present administration.
It quoted Abari as saying, “In this era of insecurity, violence and other forms of social vices, the role of the WAI Brigade in civil intelligence gathering cannot be overemphasised.”
According to Abari, the government believes that WAI Brigade members across the country should be encouraged to redouble their vigilance in the local governments, the wards and their various villages in order to contribute their quota towards building a secure society.
He recalled that WAI was a brainchild of President Muhammadu Buhari which he established in 1983 as military head of state, noting that its essence was to instill discipline in the society and support the fight against corruption. (LEADERSHIP)
