The Commandant General of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Abdullahi Gana Muhammadu, has warned vandals of critical nnfrastructure and National assets to desist from nefarious activities or face wrath of the law.

Addressing the Officers and Men of the NSCDC Special Anti-Vandals Squad, Special Force and SWAT at an interactive session at the Corps Headquarters in Abuja, the commandant general charged the personnel to live up to expectation at all times, especially in the fight against vandals in ensuring that their activities is reduced to the barest minimal.

The helmsman described the activities of the vandals as ‘unwholesome and criminal’  pointing out that illegal oil bunkering, destruction of oil pipelines, water pipelines, water infrastructure, gas pipelines, power facilities, telecommunication installations and other relevant public infrastructure and facilities are all acts of sabotage.

Abdullahi admonished the Corps personnel to rise up to the challenge to quell the criminality perpetrated by individuals and group of persons in the society, promising that the management of the NSCDC will give full support to the Corps personnel in ensuring that they discharge their duties comfortably without comprise.

The Chief Executive Officer noted, that, the Corps drive in improving the Private Guard Companies by weeding out quacks and sealing off the premises of defaulters is very laudable, imploring the Corps personnel to channel such zeal with the ultimate aim to stamp out vandals and their wrong activities in the Nigeria state.

The blissful Commandant General reminded the Corps personnel that the federal government of Nigeria holds the NSCDC in very high esteem, and expects nothing less than excellence in their collective duty performance, revealing that government has supported the organization in time past by providing logistics, and that government promises to do more for the NSCDC, but they have to justify the need for more logistics from government by enhancing the collective capacity performance.

The Chief Accounting Officer of the Corps, Abdullahi Gana Muhammadu reiterated that, the duties of the NSCDC as enunciated in the Act is a must to actualize, as we cannot let the government and the people of Nigeria down.

He said, that the NSCDC as the lead organisation in the fight against vandals and vandalism, will partner with fellow well meaning Nigerians and relevant stakeholders to overcome the endemic menace of vandals. According to the Commandant General, the synergy created will continue until vandals and their dastard acts are wiped out in the Nigerian state.

The personnel, therefore, reassured him of their commitment zeal and passion in fighting the scourge of vandalism to a standstill, thereby reiterating that more success will be recorded in his administration in the area of protection of critical infrastructure as vandals have no hidden place in the nation.
