ECONOMIC CRIMES AND NATIONAL SECURITY: A PERSPECTIVE OF THE NIGERIAN MILITARY (2009- 2015)
The period of 2009-2015 experienced the consistent failed operations of the military whereby security agencies at several times failed to subdue internal insurrections. Several reasons have been attributed to these failed operations such as insufficient supplies of arms and ammunition, low morale of the military, leaking of information to the terrorists, economic crimes, and more. Attributive theoretical framework was adopted for the study while the study relies heavily on authoritative and valid secondary sources of data with content analysis for data analysis. Findings of the study reveal that economic crimes during this period threatened the national security whereby the security operatives on several occasions fled from the attacks posed by the Boko Haram insurgents in the northern part of the country. This paper attempts to look at economic crimes and review to what extent these crimes could threaten the national security of the Nigerian state during the period under study. The paper therefore advocates the use of electronic means in the transfer of funds as against the cash transactions in the country which is in a bid to monitor the funds transferred across accounts of individuals in the state.
