NSCDC wants private guards’ help in internal security
The CommandantGeneral of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Abdullahi Muhammadu, has charged Private Guard Companies (PGC) to help improve internal security in the country.
He gave the charge on Thursday in Abuja while issuing licences to 10 PGCs.
While noting that the country is faced with multiple security challenges, the NSCDC boss charged the new PGCs to contribute their quota to efforts to stem the tide of insecurity in the country through pro-active and professional conduct.
“No country anywhere in the world has the resources to provide hundred per cent security for its citizen.
“Hence the need for Private Guard Companies to join the fight to ensure that insecurity is reduced to its barest minimum,” he said.
Muhammadu harped on the need for the PGCs to work closely with the Police, NSCDC and other security agencies in gathering security information due to their grassroot nature.
“Your numerical strength and spread is of tremendous advantage to this renewed fight against insecurity in Nigeria,” he added.
