NSCDC bursts 13 illegal security outfits operating in Anambra


By Okeke Okon

The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) Anambra State Command, bursted some illegally operating security outfits in the State.

The State Commandant of the agency, Mr Chukwudi Chikere, who disclosed this in a statement signed by command's public relations, Mr Edwin Okadigbo, noted that thirteen of the private security guards were arrested.

He said that some of them included Accurate Guard, Finotel Security, Halogen Security, St. Christopher Security Ltd, Albertina Security Guards, Superior Force, and Mega Guards.

According to him, they were operating without registration and with expired license.

Chikere further hinted that the corps would not relent in ridding the state of quacks as well as to stream line the private guard business by ensuring strict compliance to extant laws governing the sector. 

"Today's operation is in line with the statutory mandate of  NSCDC to inspect ,  license, train and monitor the activities of private guards' companies . Our aim is to uproot all illegal private security guards in the state thereby creating a conducive atmosphere for registered ones to operate without hindrance. 

"Most of those apprehended are operating without valid registration and license by the Federal Government through NSCDC. With the current security challenges affecting our nation, there is need to conduct background checks on whoever is operating or working as a private security guard. " he said.

The State Commandant ordered the Corps  Intelligence and Investigation department to conduct thorough investigation as soon as possible before  the suspects would be charged to court. 

The statement further noted that the Deputy Commandant of NSCDC, Mr Francis Obinna Nnadi, who led the operation, declared that those engaging the services of unregistered guards were endangering their lives and property.

Nnadi further noted that the Corps as part of the registration requirements conduct background checks to obtain information on the characters and identity of key players floating the company.
