NSCDC vows to arrest attackers of its headquarters in Nasarawa



The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in Nasarawa, says it has commenced investigation to unravel those behind the attack on its headquarters in Lafia.

Mr. Jerry Victor, the NSCDC Public Relations Officer in the state said this in an interview with our correspondent on Tuesday in Lafia.

NEWSVERGE recalls that unspecified number of suspected bandits attacked the NSCDC Lafia office in the early hours 17 but were repelled by the personnel of the command.

Victor said that the state commandant of the corps, Ismaila Abdullahi, had directed the Intelligent unit to get to the root of the attack with a view of apprehending the attackers, collaborators and sponsors.

He said that those behind the attack would not escape justice as the command would go after them, no matter their status in the country.

Victor said that preliminary investigation revealed that the bandits wanted to set some of their members at their custody free.

“They came in large numbers with iron rods and attempted to break some part of the command’s fence to gain entry into the facility.

“Our personnel swiftly responded by opening fire on the hoodlums, whose mission was to release some high-profile suspected criminals including informants of kidnappers in our custody,” he said.

Victor said that the command had beefed up surveillance in and around their office to forestall future occurrence.
