The Commandant of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Command, Olusola Odumosu, has charged officers and men of the Command to engage in active intelligence gathering to tackle the current security challenges in the territory.
Idoko Samuel, FCT Command’s Public Relations Officer, in a statement on Wednesday, said the commandant gave this charge during a briefing with personnel at the Command’s headquarters, Wuse, Zone 5, Abuja.
According to the statement, the criminals were not ghosts, adding that they were members of various communities.
He decried the influx of bandits, especially in communities located in the hinterlands and the fringes of the FCT, stressing that their activities were escalated by the porous borders shared with Niger, Kaduna and Nasarawa states.
Samuel called for heightened collaboration and cooperation of his personnel with the people for a seamless exchange of necessary information to bring the fight against insecurity to a logical conclusion.
