NSCDC Pledges Adequate Security In Osun
The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in Osun on Tuesday assured residents of the state of adequate security during and after the Yuletide season.
The spokesman of the NSCDC in Osun, Mr Wale Folarin, gave the assurance in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Osogbo.
Folarin said the corps had put in place adequate security measures to ensure peace before, during and after the Yuletide.
He described Osun as one of the most peaceful states in the country, saying this was a reflection of the security measures put in place to protect lives and property by security agencies.
“We have officers in all the local governments, throughout the wards, in every nook and cranny of the state.
“We have officers in mufti gathering intelligence and providing security.
“Presently, we have mapped out some black spots and have posted our officers to such places to conduct surveillance.
“We are focusing mostly on religious centres during the festive period and also providing security patrols with armed officers throughout the state.
“We have also been holding meetings with stake holders to give us information on where there are security threats or breaches in the state,’’ he said
