NIGERIA Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) says the robust synergy among security agencies in the country has assisted in tackling insecurity bedeviling the nation.
NSCDC Commandant in Oyo State, Micheal Adaralewa stated this during the official opening of a day seminar, organised by the Cooperative Union of the command.
Mr Adaralewa said protecting the lives of citizens should not only be centred on security agencies, hence the need for communities to always collaborate and give useful information on how to police them optimally.
“We have a very fantastic working synergy with other security agencies in the state. In fact, I can say that Oyo State is the only state that is enjoying inter security agencies operations.”
“We have our own personal platform where we relate on operations and it’s very robust and fantastic and it is enhancing the security architecture of the state and we have various inter-agency operations where the Civil Defence will call on the police for patrol in the night and we also do partner with the military even apart from the well-known Operations Burst, we carried out clearance operations in all the bushes especially in the state, especially in Oke Ogun part of the state to rid out our bushes from criminalities.”
Commandant Adaralewa, who commended the indigenes and residents of the state for their unflinching support in making the battle against insecurity a successful one, noted that they should not relent in ensuring a peaceful atmosphere in their environments.
In view of this, he said the command had recently inaugurated an outpost station at Inu-kan community in Ona Ara Local Government Area of Oyo State for maximum protection of the community.
The NSCDC boss stated further that the robust working synergy among the security agencies have been of great help in curbing crimes in the state.
President of the Cooperative Union of the command, who is the host of the seminar, Mr. Adebayo Kayode noted that the seminar would improve the lives of officers and men of the command to ensure they cultivate the habit of saving to enjoy a good life.
