Defence Corps wary of vandals

28 September 2015, 09:06Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has bemoaned economic losses resulting from incessant vandalism of key infrastructure.

The organisation called for a multi-stakeholder approach in the fight against vandals.

The Corps Commandant, General Abdullahi Gana, stressed that activities of economic saboteurs were geared towards selfishness and self-interest without taking into consideration the adverse effect on the society.

He said the corps was prepared to ensure that vandalisation of oil pipelines, electricity cables and equipment, telecommunication installations and other infrastructure that were of mutual benefit to the people, was stopped.

“Nigeria has lost billions of naira to the activities of vandals and most worrisome is the cost of repairs of the vandalised equipment,” Gana said.

He said the money meant for developing and improving the economy to the benefit of citizens as dividends of democracy, was being channelled towards repairing and replacing vandalised items.

He urged citizens to contribute their quota in the fight against vandalism and other social vices.

Gana meanwhile expressed satisfaction over the security situation across the country as Muslim faithful celebrated Eid-el-Kabir.

The commandant and other principal officers of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps were involved in the  patrol as a way of assuring Nigerians of the security of lives and property during the festive period. - CAJ News
