NSCDC assures protection of INEC facilities, assets in Bauchi



The Commandant, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) Bauchi State Command, Ameh Edo James, assured that personnel of the corps will join hands with other security agencies in the state to protect all Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) facilities across the state.

He also assured that the corps would continue to monitor activities to apprehend criminals and prevent criminal activities, warning that the corps will not spare any suspicious activity.

Speaking shortly after paying working visits to NSCDC formations in Tafawa Balewa, Bogoro and Dass local government areas of the state to familiarize with the good people of the areas, he urged them to give the Corps all the necessary information to improve the security situation in the state, stressing that without useful information it will be difficult to operate.

The Commandant also called on them to volunteer useful information needed to protect the INEC offices and other facilities across the three LGAs.

Ameh James then charged them to be vigilant on how they use fire and other explosives because, according to him, “we are in the dry season and fire can easily be ignited and spread”.
