NSCDC Reconstitutes Anti-Vandal Units Nationwide

The Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has reconstituted its anti vandal Unit across the country.

Its Commandant-General Ahmed Audi charged the unit to make the difference in waging war against crude oil thieves.

Audi said the newly reconstituted unit and their members are expected to discharge their responsibilities without fear or favour and ensure that sanity return to the oil industry.

The NSCDC boss said the dissolution and subsequent reconstitution of the anti-vandal unit nationwide was necessary to reposition the Corps for effective implementation of its statutory mandate of safeguarding national Assets especially petroleum pipelines and other oil installations.

It is also aimed at putting a stop to all forms of sabotage in the oil sector through arrests and dilligent.

Audi, in a statement by the Director of Public Relations of the Corps, Olusola Odumosu, said: “The reconstitution of the reformed anti-vandal unit with fresh bloods who has new zeal for success is central and germaine to our Core mandates.

“The nation is losing a lot of revenues to illegal oil merchants and this has a debilitating effect on the economy,” he said.

The Commandant-General gave a marching order to State Commandants to deploy all machineries both on land and in the waterways to carry out massive arrests and possible prosecution of oil thieves.

“I have distributed the newly acquired gunboats to you for the purpose of waging war against our enemies of our commonwealth.

“There is no excuse for failure anymore, I want to see you put a stop to revenue loss through illegal oil activities in the nation,”, Audi stressed.
