Hours after Niger Students Abduction, NSCDC Mulls Deploying Personnel Across Schools
The Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has said that it would focus more attention towards providing adequate security for all schools, across the country.
This is just as the wave of insecurity bedeviling the country, assumed a frightening dimension, with the abduction of a mass number of boarding students, in Niger State.
PRNigeria reports that the students, were kidnapped by armed bandits, who stormed their Government Secondary School (GSS) Kagara, on Tuesday night.
Recalled that over 100 students of Government Secondary School (GSS), Kankara, were also abducted and thereafter released in Katsina State, barely two months ago.
But speaking at a general meeting with Zonal Commanders and State Commandants of the Corps in Abuja, Hillary Kelechi Madu, Acting Commandant General of NSCDC, said its personnel would massively be deployed to protect schools, staff and students.
Madu, who decried the high level of indiscipline among officers and men of their security agency, in recent times, equally stressed that his leadership will not condone unethical behaviours and conducts, among the personnel.
He assured that the agro-rangers policy in States would be rejigged so as to restore farmers confidence, with a view to guaranteeing food security.
“We will not relent in ensuring that we restore sanity in NSCDC, and also reclaim its lost glory,” he said.
