Security is the basic preoccupation of every individual, community or nation.  This is because security affects not only under a secure atmosphere that individual within a state can engage in productive ventures to meet their respective needs.  Similarly, it is under a safe and secure atmosphere that the state can mobilize both its human and natural resources for meaningful development.  To provide this much needed security therefore, service personnel in internal security operations come in contact with the right s of other people.  This paper examines the modus operandi of the various security personnel in Nigeria with a view to highlighting the level of observance of the rule of law, due process and human rights in their operation.  We observed that the Nigerian Army, Police and Department of State Security have shown no regard to the human rights of Nigerians in the course of their duty.  We suggested training and retraining of these security personnel so that they can be more civil in their modus operandi.
