Kaduna   –   The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) says it has deployed 5,000 personnel to provide security in Kaduna State during the Eid-el-kabir celebrations.

The NSCDC Acting Kaduna State Commandant, Mr Ilelaboye Oyejide, made this known in statement issued by the spokesman, Orndiir Terzungwe, in Kaduna on Wednesday.

Oyejide said that the NSCDC personnel, together with other sister agencies, would comb all black spots and arrest suspects threatening the peace enjoyed in the state.

He said the Corps would intensify surveillance during and after the celebrations.

The acting state commandant called on residents, especially those in areas suspected to be flash points, to be vigilant and report suspected persons and acts for swift attention.

“This call has become necessary in view of some security threats comprising of kidnapping, armed robbery, rustling and insurgency bedeviling the state in spite of measures put in place to checkmate insecurity,” he said.

Oyejide assured the people that NSCDC was doing its best and would deploy tactical approach in addressing such challenges.

“Thus, it is very important to seek collaboration with the good and peace-loving residents of the state and the public without which the desired result may not be achieved,” he said.

According to him, the perpetrators of crimes are not ghosts, but people living among in the communities, and must be exposed for peace to reign.

“We urge inhabitants of those communities where the criminals reside and operate to expose them by reporting to us for appropriate action.

“No one should be scared in obliging useful information to any office of the NSCDC in the state.

“All volunteers of information as well as information given shall be treated with utmost secrecy for the peace and development of the nation,” he said.

The acting commandant urged people to be careful and avoid movement in black spots at odd hours which might expose them to attack.

“I urge parents to monitor the movement and activities of their children and wards to prevent them from being harmed or lured into indulging in nefarious acts,” Oyejide said.

He commended the traditional, religious and opinion leaders for their support to the peace efforts championed by the government.
