NATFORCE is an Illegal Body, says National Security Council

The National Security Council (NSC) has declared the National Taskforce on Prohibition of Illegal, Importation/Smuggling of Arms, Ammunition, Light Weapons, Chemical Weapons and Pipeline Vandalism (NATFORCE) as an illegal body.

Speaking with journalists after the meeting of the council chaired by President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja on Thursday, the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, said members of the NSC agreed that the organisation is illegal and that it should disband itself.

A bill passed by the Senate in July sought to establish legalise the activities of NATFORCE, but the House of Representatives is yet to pass the bill.
