    NSCDC trains Katsina Command operatives on peace, conflict resolution

    The Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC) has organised a sensitisation and evaluation training for its officers and personnel across 34 divisional offices in the Katsina State command.

     

    During the training on Friday in Katsina, the facilitator, CSC Abdulkadir Umar said the training on Peace and Conflict Resolution (PCR) was aimed to improve their service delivery.

     

    Umar said the PCR was one of the Key Performance Indicators (KPI) used to measure the performance of the corps by the Ministry of Interior and other international actors.

     

    “The training is in line with the Commandant-General’s mantra of rejigging, revitalising, revamping, resuscitating and repositioning the NSCDC for improved service delivery.

     

    The National Headquarters Abuja, organised the sensitisation session on PCR through the adoption of Alternative Dispute Resolution Mechanism (ADRM). 

     

    “The Session is an important measure to keep the personnel of the command abreast of the current trends in ADR as an important non-kinetic tool of conflict resolution.

     

    “Among the key issues discussed include the modus operandi of the PCR across different formations from the National Headquarters down to the desk officers at the divisional offices as they tackle the complexities surrounding conflict resolution.

     

    The complexities include issues related to conflict, debt recovery, interpersonal conflicts like domestic crisis and land disputes.

     

    He equally admonished the participants to collaborate with sister agencies and other stakeholders in conflict resolution.

     

    He said security agencies, traditional authorities, religious leaders, community associations and civil society organizations should deliberate on issues of mutual interests and peaceful coexistence.

     

    The State Commandant, Mohammed Sanusi, enjoined the participants to take heed of all the issues being discussed and conduct themselves according to the code of conduct and operational guidelines.

     

    He also welcomed the initiative of CG Ahmed Abubakar Audi in organising such a capacity building programme, to improve the capacity of the Officers and men of the Command.

    NSCDC arrests suspected rail line vandals in Enugu

    The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Enugu State Command, has arrested a four-man vandalism gang that specialises in vandalising rail line materials within Enugu State.

    The NSCDC Command’s Public Relations Officer, CSC Denny Manuel, disclosed this in a statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday in Enugu.

    Manuel said that the suspected vandals were arrested on April 19 by a combined team of NSCDC operatives and Hunters and Forest Security Services at locations within Aninri Local Government Area of the state.

    “The kingpin of the group, who gave his name as Monday Onyeabor, 31, was arrested by a combined team of the Corps operatives and security group while in possession of two railway slippers at Mmafu community in Aninri Local Government Area.

    “During interrogation, Onyeabor gave the names of the other three members of his gang as Ejike Ogbonna, 27, Amobi Okolie, 27, and Chukwuka Ekwe, 27, all from Oduma in the same Aninri Local Government Area.

    “Based on his statement, a manhunt for the three was mounted which resulted in their arrest.

    “One of the arrested suspects, Amobi Okolie, claimed to be innocent of the crime, but confessed that he has sometimes in the recent past assisted other suspects in transporting vandalised materials, which at that time he claimed was unknown to him to be products of vandalism.

    “Okolie, however, was found to be in possession of syringes and a pipe which he confessed he used in sniffing the infamous Methamphetamine, popularly known in the local parlance as Mkpurummiri.

    “Also recovered from the suspect are a cutlass and a motorcycle,” he said.

    The NSCDC spokesman also said that investigation had been intensified by the Corps to unravel other culprits in the chain of this “unholy trade”.

    He said that the state’s NSCDC Commandant, Mr Valentine Afrika, had re-emphasised the resolve of the Corps in the state to get rid of all unwanted elements.

    Manuel quoted the Commandant as saying: “The Corps will continually deal ruthlessly with all those vandalising or tampering with government infrastructure.

    “I also call on members of the public to always assist security agencies with credible information on activities of criminals, especially public infrastructure vandals in the state.” (NAN) (
