The Commandant-General, CG, of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, Ahmed Audi, has assured Nigerians that a highly coordinated approach has been put in place to avert the looming threat of attack on airport facilities across the Country.

According to a statement issued by the Corps’ Director of Public Relations, DCC Olusola Odumosu, at the National Headquarters, the NSCDC boss, who in a swift reaction to an intelligence report directed Commandants of States with Airports to immediately liaise with the Airports Management Authorities and other relevant stakeholders to fortify the internal security mechanism of the facilities, also hinted that the move is necessary to elicit credible intelligence that will not only prevent such attacks but also to bring those behind the purported acts to book.

TheFact Nigeria reports that the CG stressed that the Corps cannot afford to treat the security of Nigerians with kid gloves, hence, his marching order to all concerned State Commandants to adequately deploy operatives from specialized units such as Counter-Terrorism, Anti-Vandalism, Crisis and Disaster Management as well as Intelligence and Surveillance personnel for covert operations to all the Airports in the country.

The NSCDC CG called on all Nigerians to see the security of the nation as everyone’s business and not an exclusive preserve of security agencies alone, by volunteering credible information about any suspicious movement or criminal activities, while assuring them of his organization’s commitment to protect the identity of informants.
