Releated Post

No fewer than 47,000 personnel of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, (NSCDC), have been deployed nationwide to provide security during the Eid-el-Kabir celebration.

Audi stated this in a meeting held with the top management team of the NSCDC at the National Headquarters in Abuja.

According to him, the mass deployment is to justify the confidence the citizenry places in the Corps, and the need to live up to expectations by ensuring that every nook and cranny of the country is adequately secured and protected.

The CG also directed all Zonal Commanders and State Commandants to ensure adherence to operational order, standard operating procedure and code of conduct as they work tirelessly to maintain peace and order in their domain, he further ordered that all critical national assets and Infrastructure must be jealously safeguarded while massive arrests should be carried out on Vandals and economic saboteurs.

The NSCDC helmsman explained that the deployment of over 47,000 personnel comprises all Special Forces, CG’s Special Intelligence Squad, Agro Rangers, Mining Marshals, Special Female Squad, SWAT and other specialized units who are to ensure round-the-clock surveillance on CNAI and free movement without any fear or intimidation.

Audi stressed the need for synergy with other security agencies through effective cooperation, collaboration and coordination to combat emerging threats without delay.

“Since no agency has a monopoly of strategy to tackling security challenges; the NSCDC will continue to collaborate with sister security agencies to enhance the nation’s security architecture”.

“It is, therefore necessary for all formations to be on alert and intensify efforts through constant patrols, surveillance and intelligence gathering both on land and the coastal areas even as all black spots are marked red zones.

While extending his felicitation to the Muslim faithful on this year’s Eid-el-Kabir celebration, Audi also used the opportunity to call on members of the public to be vigilant and be free to report any suspicious movement to the nearest security agency for appropriate action to be taken.
