The State Commandant of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps,Mr. Vincent Ogu JP, has cautioned officers and men of Intelligence and Investigation Department of the Command to put more effort in the area of Intelligence gathering from the civil populace and warned against indolence, complacency, and negligence in the discharge of their duties.
In a press statement by the Command’s Spokesperson, DSC Okadigbo Edwin stated that, “Mr. Ogu gave the warning when he held a meeting with all the Intelligence and Investigation Officers in the three Area Command and twenty one Local Govt Areas of the State at the State Headquarters Awka on Friday 30th of July, 2021.”
He charged them to be proactive in carrying out their duties considering the relative advantage NSCDC has as a grassroot security outfit. He also acknowledged the sacrifices made by some of them for the relative peace and security in the State , noting that the Corps will soon appreciate and reward them . According to him, there is no reason or excuse for Officers and Men not to perform inspite of the welfare packages and operational support from the Commandant General of NSCDC, Dr. Ahmed Audi, Ph.D, mni.
Comdt. Ogu reaffirmed the Command’s support and protection of both lives of Anambrarians and residents alike and Government’s Critical National Assets and Infrastructures.
He appealed to Anambrarians and residents alike to support and volunteer information to the Corps that could lead to arrest and prosecution of offenders in the collective fight against crimes and criminality in the Anambra State.
