NSCDC trains 54 female armed squad in Kaduna


The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Kaduna State Command, has completed the training of its first 54 female armed squad to effectively carry out its operations of ensuring sanity in the society.


The 54 personnel that have completed their training will be deployed to protect critical national assets and ensure the success of safe school programmes.


The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, who was the reviewing officer at the Passing Out Parade, Correctional Service Staff Collage, Kaduna, was represented by Abdullahi Salihu, an Assistant Director at the Civil Defence, Correctional, Fire and Immigration Service Board.


The Minister explained that the selection of the officers was vigorous, describing them as the best.


He further explained that the creation of NSCDC Armed Women Squad by the Commandant-General, Ahmed Audi, was to fight insurgency and protect schools, aside from other responsibilities against the present security challenges.


The minister, however, congratulated the graduands and enjoined them to contribute their quota in the fight against banditry and other vices in Kaduna.


The Minister stated, “Among the NSCDC, you are now elites; there mustn’t be doubts, compromise, bribery; you must be upright.”


He expressed gratitude to the Nigerian Correctional Services for allowing them to use their facilities, manpower and expertise to train their personnel.


Awards were given to those who distinguished themselves during the training.
