As part of the preparations for this year’s Eid-el-Kabir celebration, the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps has deployed 5,112 personnel to beef up security in the Federal Capital Territory.

NSCDC Public Relations Officer in the FCT, Mr Babawale Afolabi, disclosed this in a statement on Thursday in Abuja.

Afolabi said the NSCDC Commandant in FCT, Dr Olusola Odumosu, has directed officers and men of the corps to ensure the six area councils in the territory are adequately protected.

The FCT NSCDC spokesman said to ensure a hitch-free celebration, emphasis was placed on the protection of sensitive locations, soft targets, black spots and flash points prone to criminal activities.

“We have deployed all our special forces such as the Armed Squad, Intelligence and Under Cover Officers, Counter Terrorism Unit, Female Strike Force, Special Crack Squad (operation Adaka-su), and Agro Rangers to ensure maintenance of law and order,” the statement partly read.

He warned miscreants, vandals and other mischief makers to steer clear of critical national assets and infrastructure.

The statement warned that the Corps would not hesitate to bring the full wrath of the law on anyone caught or found culpable.

It also cautioned against the burning of tyres on roads, saying that it affected the integrity of roads and, therefore, constituted an act of vandalism.

The statement urged NSCDC personnel to be committed, vigilant, responsive and resolute in ensuring a territory devoid of security breaches or threats.

“There is no room for carelessness or overzealousness while carrying out your duties.
“Operational order must be followed to ensure professionalism on your part,” the statement added.

It assured the residents of continuous synergy with sister agencies to provide adequate security.

The NSCDC commandant felicitated Muslim faithful in the FCT as they celebrate Eid-el-Kabir, praying that the Almighty Allah would accept their sacrifices.
