The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) Enugu State Command, has urged the State Government and corporate bodies to assist it with operational vehicles and logistics to further enhance its operations.
The Commandant of the Corps in the state, Mr Steve Amoga, made the appeal in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday in Enugu.
Amoga said that as a security agency in-charge of protecting critical public and government infrastructure and utilities, vehicular logistics would further enhance the operation of the corps.
“In modern security arrangement, rugged vehicles with communication gadgets are a pre-requisite for most successful security operations and tactical surveillance.
“So, the command needed additional operational vehicles to keep the command far ahead of vandals and other hoodlums.
“The vehicles would also help to protect the arms and ammunition that NSCDC officers and men are carrying as well as help in positioning its personnel for action,’’ he said.
Amoga, however, noted that the command had the track record of maintaining and protecting all logistics provided for it always.
“You can see the few vehicles given to us three years ago with other security agencies, ours is still very neat as if it is donated to the command yesterday.
“This is the pain we take to ensure that any vehicle donated or any other logistics to the command are well maintained,“ he said.
The commandant said that the command had lived up to the expectations of the public.
According to him, NSCDC is now a household name since we are always pro-active and ensure prompt response to emergency from members of the public,“ he said.(
