The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps has intensified security measures ahead of the Eid-el-Kabir celebrations in the Federal Capital Territory.

The FCT Commandant, NSCDC, Dr Olusola Odumosu, announced the deployment of 5,112 NSCDC personnel across the state to safeguard residents and visitors during the festive period.

The deployment spans all six area councils, the city centre, and other crucial locations vulnerable to criminal activities.

‘The Commandant, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Federal Capital Territory Command, Dr Olusola Odumosu, has deployed 5,112 personnel to beef up security in the FCT, before and during the Sallah celebration.

‘The Corps is committed to ensuring the safety of lives and property of residents and the protection of Critical National Assets in the FCT,’ the spokesperson of the command, Samuel Idoko stated in a statement on Thursday.

The commandant emphasised the importance of adhering to operational guidelines to maintain professionalism and public trust.

Specialised units including the Armed Squad, Intelligence operatives, Counter Terrorism Unit, Female Strike Force, Special Crack Squad (operation Adaka-su), and Agro Rangers have been mobilised to bolster security operations across the FCT.

Collaborating closely with other security agencies, NSCDC will provide comprehensive security coverage at prayer grounds, motor parks, recreational centres, and other public venues throughout the Eid festivities.

‘You are to ensure 24-hour protection of all these infrastructures and the holidaymakers in the city. We must show commitment in the discharge of our duties as law enforcers.

‘However, there is no room for carelessness or overzealousness while carrying out your duties and the operational order must be followed to ensure professionalism on your part,’ Odumosu admonished.

He urged residents to cooperate with security personnel and report any suspicious activities promptly to ensure a secure and enjoyable Sallah celebration in the FCT.
