The Commandant-General of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Abdullahi Muhammadu Gana, has charged operatives to work with other sister security agencies to protect life and property in the North East zone.
Gana relocated to the North East on the directive of the Minister of Interior, Lt-Gen. Abdulraman Danbazau (rtd), after the recent abduction of the Dapchi schoolgirls in Yobe State by insurgents.
The NECDC boss has since swung into action with his management team in the deployment of the Corps personnel to schools and all other black spots to curtail kidnap cases.
The CG further charged his personnel to work in synergy with other security agencies in order to clamp down on the perpetrators of the heinous crime.
He explained that in Borno State the Corps personnel had been adequately deployed to protect returnees to liberated communities which were once ravaged by insurgents in order to sustain the peace since the military had degraded Boko Haram sect.
Gana reassured the Corps personnel of his commitment to their welfare and advised them to be “resolute, committed, loyal, dedicated and not to compromise their oath of secrecy in discharging their duties.”
During his visit to Borno, Yobe and Adamawa states, Gana charged the NSCDC officers to be involved in grassroots intelligence and be more proactive in their approach tow protecting the people and national infrastructure rather than adopting the reactionary approach.
