NSCDC deploys 2,979 Personnel In Delta State



As part of efforts and measures to provide water tight security for a hitch free Yuletide season, the Delta state command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), has deployed 2,979 personnel to achieve this aim.

This was made known by the Public Relations Officer of the Command, Emeka Peters, on Friday in Asaba, where he stated that the state Commandant, Mr. Akinsanya Iskilu, approved the deployment of the workforce, to areas considered to be flash points and red sports across the state, to ensure strict security before, during and after the Yuletide.

Mr. Akinsanya said that the personnel went through a series of rigorous training, regiments, lectures, briefings and exercises to prepare them for the task.

He stated that the personnel were drafted from the Counter Terrorism Unit CTU, Snipper Combatants, Female Squad, Crack Team, Special Forces and others.

While advocating for a hitch-free Yuletide, Mr. Akinsanya warned against the use of fireworks before, during and after the yuletide.

He said that it could induce fear, panic or apprehension which might also misinform security agencies as some miscreants or hoodlums could hide or operate under the guise of fireworks to carry out their nefarious atrocities.

He reminded the public that the ban on the use of fireworks in the state had not been lifted in order to enable security forces to detect and determine when hoodlums were operating.

He said that the leadership of the Corps was committed to the protection of life and property and the maintenance of peace and order in the state.

He charged the public to renew their confidence in security agencies and should “feel free to say something when they see anything that is against the laws”.

He called on mischief makers to relocate elsewhere as the operatives were ready for them.
