A renowned Interpol Systems Consultant, Sir Chikwe Udensi has alleged that misappropriation of the security vote from the federal government by some state governors is one of the reasons why insecurity is festering, stating that some governors convert it to personal pocket money.
According to Sir Udensi, some governors receive as much as N600 million monthly for security votes which he insisted are not deployed to security issues, alleging that they go beyond security vote to pilfer from other sources for their personal use.
