NSCDC to deploy female squad to schools in Kwara to curb abduction

The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) Command in Kwara has created a female squad to take charge of security in schools across the state. The State Commandant of NSCDC, Makinde Ayinla, stated this at a press conference in Ilorin.

Mr Ayinla said that the squad was set up to prevent the abduction of pupils and students in schools.

“There is a need for a female squad that will keep watch over our schools and checkmate students’ abduction.

“We have trained some selected personnel on this, and with the permission of the state governor, we will deploy them to schools this month,” he said.

Ayinla also said that NSCDC intended to keep 24 hours surveillance on correctional centres, to forestall any breach of security in the facilities.

He said that the corps would intensify efforts on training of its officers, especially on how to handle weapons as well as intelligent information gathering, to further aid their performance.

Ayinla disclosed that the Agro-ranger unit of the corps in 2021 handled 76 cases on agro-allied matters and farmer/herder clashes, and added that 63 of the cases were resolved.
