Daily Trust - - DIGEST - By Taiwo Adeniyi

The Abuja Mu­nic­i­pal Area Coun­cil (AMAC) Mar­shal Guard has said it hopes to syn­er­gise with other para­mil­i­tary or­gan­i­sa­tions in Abuja to stem so­cial vices and make the area safe for res­i­dents.

The Mar­shal Gen­eral of AMAC Mar­shal, Kassim Ishaku Chicha, who made this known at the pass­ing out pa­rade of 700 newly trained per­son­nel, said the syn­ergy would help in en­sur­ing bet­ter re­or­gan­is­ing, reg­u­lat­ing and mon­i­tor­ing of com­mer­cial mo­tor­cy­cle operators in many com­mu­ni­ties.

“Out of our to­tal com­mit­ment to serv­ing our na­tion and com­mu­nity, we held a meet­ing with the Po­lice Com­mand, Nige­rian Se­cu­rity and Civil De­fence Corps and Ve­hi­cle In­spec­tion Of­fi­cers on a joint task force to ap­pre­hend park­ing and pedes­trian bridge of­fend­ers to ease traf­fic con­ges­tion in the city cen­tre,” he said.

He said the group had helped in check­ing the ex­cesses of ‘Okada’ rid­ers and stemmed within the area.

He said the newly re­cruited 700 per­son­nel were trained on in­tel­li­gence gath­er­ing, surveil­lance, mon­i­tor­ing and eval­u­a­tion and were avail­able for en­gage­ment by cor­po­rate and pri­vate or­gan­i­sa­tions.

On his part, AMAC chair­man, Ab­dul­lahi Adamu Can­dido, urged the mar­shals not to drag the name of the coun­cil in the mud but to carry out their du­ties with ut­most dili­gence and re­spect for rule of law. cultism
