NSCDC tasks licenced private security outfits in Anambra on enhanced service delivery

The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps ( NSCDC) has tasked private security operators on the need for efficient security services to residents of Anambra.

Mr Isidore Chikere, the State Commandant of the Corps made the call during stakeholders’ forum organised at the NSCDC Command’s headquarters, Awka on Wednesday.

He pledged the commitment of the command to private security operators to achieve enhanced security services to corporate bodies and individuals.

Chikere said, the command was ready to equip private security practitioners with needed capacity to ensure they deliver better services in a more professional and secured environment.

He tasked operators to show interest in acquiring better security skills as that would make them provide quality services to the people.

Chikere condemned what he described as the influx of quacks in the industry and said the corps will continue to clamp down on unregistered security outfits in the state.

“Quacks constitute huge security threat to both the citizens and other players in the industry.

” I am using this opportunity to cautione members of the public and corporate bodies who engage untrained security personnel.

“The public should seek clarifications when in doubt from NSCDC before engaging any private security outfit as a proactive measure in preventing infiltration of the industry, crime control, and restoring professionalism”, he said.

Chikere called on licenced security outfits to always conduct their activities in line with the Private Guard Companies Act, saying anything other than that would be encouraged in the area.

Earlier in his address, Deputy Commandant Francis Nnadi , the Head Department of Private Guard Companies in the Command said Anambra NSCDC now has comprehensive database and personnel profile of licenced security outfits in the state.

He hinted that some security outfits operating without legal backing were either sealed up or made to perfect their registration with the Corps.

In his remark, Dr Okon Antai, Chairman, Association of Licenced Private Security Practitioners of Nigeria( ALPSPN), Anambra commended the NSCDC for their commitment in sanitizing the sector.
