Country: Nigeria

The Commandant General of Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Abdullahi Muhammadu Gana, has disclosed that the corps under his watch has cut the rate of vandalism of critical infrastructure of government, especially pipelines across the country, to 30 per cent.

Gana also revealed that the corps has over 2000 chattered peace negotiators certified by United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).

In an exclusive interview with LEADERSHP in Abuja, the CG revealed that the Corps certified peace negotiators have secretly resolved major crisis, citing Nasarawa, Cross River, Imo, among other states as a case study.

Gana added that the Corps had been able to make series of arrests of criminal elements, many of whom are currently now facing prosecution while many others have been convicted and sentenced to various jail terms

Noting that his men have clamped down on operators of illegal refineries and destroyed over 450 the illegal refineries in their bid to abate economic sabotage by bunkerers and operators, the CG said they made over 162 arrests from 2016 to date.

Gana who attributed the decline in the spate of vandalism of critical infrastructure to the Corps sustained engagements with vandals explained that 50 out of the 162 arrested vandals have been convicted.
