National Security Adviser, NSA, Major-General Mohammed Babagana Monguno(ret.) has been asked to steer clear of the presidential villa and will not be attending security briefings and the weekly Federal Executive Council (FEC) Meetings, which is usually presided over by the President or Vice President.
Chief of Staff to the President, Mr. Abba Kyari
THEWILL gathered from a top source privy to the development that the directive was given by the Chief of Staff to the President, Mr. Abba Kyari.

Monguno did not attend a special security meeting between President Muhammadu Buhari and the service chiefs, which held behind closed-doors at the presidential villa on Monday.
THEWILL also gathered exclusively that Monguno did not attend last week’s FEC meeting presided by President Buhari because of the directive.

National Security Adviser (NSA), Babagana Monguno
has repeatedly clashed with Mr. Kyari over control of security and intelligence matters.

Last week the cold war between both top officials became public after two restricted memos written by the NSA to service chiefs and the President accusing Kyari of interference in security matters and issuing orders in variance to the president’s leaked to the press.

THEWILL has also reliably gathered that all security branches – Army, Police, Air Force, DSS, and Navy have all withdrawn their officers serving at the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA), in solidarity with Kyari.

THEWILL further gathered from our source, who asked to remain anonymous that the move has tremendously degraded operations at the NSA and rendered the office irrelevant in the scheme of things.
