For Easter, The NSCDC Deploys 35,000 Personnel

In order to guarantee a trouble-free Easter celebration, Ahmed Audi, the Commandant General of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, has sent out 35,000 soldiers throughout the nation.

According to a statement by the Corps spokesperson, Babawale Afolabi, on Thursday, “the deployment comprising officers and men with targeting no fewer than 35,000 personnel is to provide watertight security before, during and after the festivity to protect lives and property including critical national assets and infrastructure.”

The CG tasked operatives in the Anti-Vandal Unit, Special Intelligence Squad, Transport and Mining Marshals, Special Female Squad, Special Force, Special Weapon and Tactics, Directorate of Intelligence and Investigation, Crack Squad, and Rapid Response Squad among others to ensure round-the-clock surveillance as contained in the operational order.

“While the deployment is to yield the desired result of maximum security through overt and covert operations, the CG reiterates that oil installations, railway tracks, power and telecommunications, schools as well as recreational facilities should be adequately protected through surveillance.

“Members of the public are also to support by giving useful and timely information on suspected acts and persons for prompt and appropriate response,” the statement added.
