Easter: NSCDC deploys 1,100 personnel in Ondo


The Ondo State Command of the Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, says it has deployed at least 1,100 personnel to various parts of the state for the forthcoming Easter celebration.

The state's commandant, Oluyemi Ibiloye, said this in a statement made available to newsmen by the spokesperson, DSC Aidamenbor Daniel, on Tuesday in Akure.

Ibiloye said the deployed personnel were drawn from the operations department, Squad, Rapid Response Squad, RRS; Counter Unit, CTU; and Surveillance Unit.

Others are Intelligence and Investigation, mounted unit and Patrol team of the command.

According to him, the deployment was due to the expected high human and vehicular movement in and out of the state during and after the festive period.

“The areas of concentration are worship centres, recreational centres, malls and marketplaces coupled with other volatile areas.

“Meanwhile, Area Commanders and Divisional Officers are to ensure that the protection of critical national assets and infrastructure are top on their watch list.

“Also intelligence will be shared with agencies in ensuring that lives and property of the good people of Ondo State are kept before, during and after the Easter celebration,” Ibiloye said.
