They were handed the letters relieving them of their services in the NSA’s office before he travelled with President Muhammadu Buhari to France on Monday
Informed security sources disclosed to the Tribune Online that General Monguno had, last week Thursday, held a brief meeting with all the directors where he informed them of a lot of things going wrong in his office
According to the source, the issue of allowances and welfare of junior staff were not taken serious by the directors as they allegedly did not care how the personnel were faring.
