NSCDC UNVEILS FEMALE SQUAD TO SECURE SCHOOLS IN FCT, KATSINA
The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, (NSCDC) has commissioned an all-female combatant squad, as part of its ‘Safe Schools Initiative’.
This will be the first phase of deployment of some of its personnel, to schools in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and Katsina state and they have promised to deploy more to other states.
It was announced by the NSCDC Commandant General (CG), Dr Ahmed Audi on Monday during a special parade, simulation exercise and unveiling of the squad, at the NSCDC Headquarters parade ground in Abuja.
Audi directed them to take on criminals without hesitation, as a quest for security stability in the country.
“The new squad was established due to the unprovoked and mindless attacks on Nigerians by kidnappers and bandits, which has led to loss of lives and left gory images in its trail.
He said that the female squad was to complement the efforts of their male counterparts and work together with sister agencies.
