…….Security: NSCDC to deploy gun truck to Kuje prison

The FCT Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) says it will deploy gun truck to Kuje Medium Security Custodial Centre to strengthen security around the facility.

The FCT NSCDC Commandant, Mr Olusola Odumosu, who made this known when he received the Comptroller of Corrections, FCT Command, Mr John Francis in his office, said the gun truck would be used for surveillance patrol and securing the facility.

He said that the command recently received three gun trucks for the protection of lives and property within the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

Odumosu appreciated the visit, saying it would boost existing synergy between the two services towards curving crimes in the territory.

“In view of the common goal the Corps share with other security agencies, we are poised to synergise at all times to achieve this all-important goal.

“Provision of security is not something anyone could handle alone; security is all encompassing and requires that all hands should be on deck to actualise.

“Unhealthy rivalry is not necessary if we must achieve the mandate of securing lives and property of the people, as well as government’s critical national assets,” he was quoted as saying in a statement by the Command’s Spokesperson, Mr Samuel Idoko.

In his remarks, Francis, the FCT Comptroller of Corrections, said the NSCDC commandant had shown purposeful leadership since assuming office.

He said that the visit was to enhance the collaboration between them towards ensuring a safer FCT, free of crime and criminality.
