Yuletide: Kwara NSCDC Deploys 2,500 Personnel For Security

The Kwara State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, has deployed 2,500 personnel across the state to forestall the breakdown of law and order before, during and after the Christmas and New Year festivals.

The deployment targets crucial areas prone to threats, including prayer grounds, worship centres, recreational facilities, motor parks, gardens, markets, shopping complexes, black spots, and critical installations.

Commandant Umar Mohammed disclosed that the initiative is aimed at establishing coordinated actionable intelligence, deterring and addressing potential threats to ensure a secure environment for all.

He directed Area Commanders, Divisional Officers and tactical commanders to beef up security during the Christmas and New Year celebrations to prevent any untoward situation in their areas of responsibility throughout the Christmas season and beyond.

Commandant Umar also charged them to emphasize the protection of critical national assets and infrastructure to check vandalism during the yuletide.

He reassured Kwara residents that NSCDC is operationally positioned to collaborate with sister security agencies to ensure a secure environment for a joyful and peaceful celebration.

A statement by the spokesman of the Civil Defence Corps, Ayoola Micheal Shola, in Ilorin on Monday urged members of the public to stay watchful, be on high alert, and promptly report any suspicious activities or movements of suspected criminals to security agencies for necessary actions.
