Commandant General, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Abdullahi Gana Muhammadu, has directed tightened security measures in all critical infrastructure of government.

He said the measure was aimed at guarding against the sort of incident that occurred in Konu, a border town between Arepo, Ogun State and Ikorodu, Lagos State, where suspected pipeline vandals allegedly shot dead some operatives of the Department of State Security (DSS) last week.

The pipeline vandals reportedly ambushed the operatives in what could be described as a bloody encounter.

Public Relations Officer of NSCDC, DC Emmanuel Okeh, yesterday quoted Gana as saying in a condolence message to the DSS: “I learned with great sadness and shock the news of the killing of DSS operatives by suspected pipeline vandals. The NSCDC condemns, in the strongest possible terms, this criminal attack.

“I would like to present my deep and heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims, the government and the Department of State Security (DSS).”

Gana, according to Okeh, “therefore declared war against vandals, warning them to steer clear of government infrastructure or face the full weight of the consequences of their actions.”

He noted that the corps as a creation of government by an Act of Parliament was saddled with responsibility of protecting the Nations Critical Infrastructure and National Assets.

The statement mentioned the critical infrastructure to include among others, protection of petroleum pipelines, gas installations, telecommunication facilities, transport facilities such as rails, roads, etc.‎
