Eid-El-Fitr: Anambra NSCDC Deploys 951 Personnel

The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Anambra State Command on Monday said it has deployed over 951 personnel to protect worship centres across the state during the Eid-El-Fitr celebration.

The State Commandant of the NSCDC, Maku Olatunde disclosed this in Awka on Monday through an operational order issued to all area commanders and Divisional Officers, Heads of Information, and tactical units, instructing them to ensure sufficient security coverage and peaceful conduct of the Sallah celebrations in the state.

Olatunde said the move was made to “tighten the noose around criminals and their henchmen” across the state.


He said, “Proactive and robust anti-crime measures, including deployment of tactical and intelligence assets of the command, are already in place to prevent any untoward incidents in and around the state.

“To ensure that Muslims in the state have a hitch-free Eid-Fitr celebration, the command has mobilised operatives to cover all nooks and crannies of the state, which include Eid praying grounds, recreational centres and other public places.

“The essence of this deployment is to ensure that miscreants and disgruntled elements do not take advantage of the occasion to perpetrate criminality.”

Olatunde urged residents to be vigilant and observe security and safety tips, advising them not to engage in any act capable of breaching peace in the state and to report any suspicious activities to the NSCDC.
