While emphasizing on the content and relevance of the book to the present security situation, Madobi noted that National Security does not only entails the protection of lives and properties of people, but also go in a wider dimension to include security in education, transportation, health, economy, infrastructures, environment, food and agriculture, politics, religion, culture, society etc.

His first expedition was at Chonoko Village, in Zuru Emirate of Kebbi State where he reported on the plights of over 10,000 IDPs in that banditry-ravaged community.
In addition, he also undertook another investigation on how banditry and kidnapping has affected the livelihoods of Kagara residents in Niger State respectively.
The retreat was an annual ritual convened to review the activities of the preceding year and to set out a roadmap for achieving targeted goals for the upcoming year across various titles.
