Securing Nigeria: Check Out Photos Of The Newly Commissioned NSCDC Female Squad

As a way to enhance security in schools susceptible to bandits’ attack, the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, has commissioned a newly established female squad.

The NSCDC Commandant-General, Mr Ahmed Audi had earlier said the special female squad was one of his many strategies to reposition, re-jig, revamp and rejuvenate the corps to a world-class organisation.

On Friday at the passing out parade of personnel of the squad at the corps training College in Katsina, Audi said the female Squad is a child of necessity borne out of the need to effectively curtail the recent upsurge of insecurity occasioned by armed banditry, kidnapping, insurgency and the need to effectively implement government’s proposed Safe School Initiative.

The commandant-general also charged the personnel to continue to do their best in combating security challenges facing the nation.

Before selection, the women went through three weeks intensive and rigorous training as well as capacity building programmes to make them combat ready. They were also trained for physical and tactical manoeuvring, especially for special intervention and operations which will in no small measure help to address some of security challenges facing the nation.
