Buratai, who noted  that the command  was aware of  the importance  of  administrative officers in the management and handling of highly classified documents, said:

“The exposure of these documents may by injurious to  national security, especially now that the country is facing challenges of insecurity.

“Keeping these documents tight and secure is very important and you are to be alert to your duty and responsibilities.

“Consequences of your inactions can cause an irreparable loss  to the nation.

“Be careful in the way you discuss service matters on social media and try as much as possible not to compromise information as administrative officers of the command.’’
