The Commandant of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Command, Olusola Odumosu, has charged officers and men of the Command to engage in active intelligence gathering to tackle the current security challenges in the territory.
CSC Idoko Samuel, FCT Command’s Public Relations Officer, in a statement on Wednesday, said the commandant gave this charge during a briefing with personnel at the Command’s headquarters, Wuse, Zone 5, Abuja.
According to the statement, the criminals were not ghosts, adding that they were members of various communities.
“We must, therefore, intensify efforts by fully activating our intelligence architecture to identify them and ensure they are brought to book,” the statement said.
He decried the influx of bandits, especially in communities located in the hinterlands and the fringes of the FCT, stressing that their activities were escalated by the porous borders shared with Niger, Kaduna and Nasarawa states.
He called for heightened collaboration and cooperation of his personnel with the people for a seamless exchange of necessary information to bring the fight against insecurity to a logical conclusion.
“While our war against vandals is ongoing, we must shine our searchlight on the issue of kidnapping that has become the order of the day in FCT.
“Without information to work with, there is little or nothing the security agencies can do,” he said
The Commandant appreciated the Minister of the FCT, Barr Nyesom Wike, for the support he is giving to security agencies in the Federal Capital Territory and assured him and other residents of an end to the current situation soon.
