The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, said it has treated 2,573 criminal and civil cases in Katsina State, from January 2023 to December.
The NSCDC State Commandant, Jamilu Indabawa, made this disclosure in an interview with newsmen on Friday in Katsina.
He said the command has also treated about 1,556 criminal cases, and 1,047 civil cases, and resolved 215 disputes.
Indabawa further said that the suspected criminals were arrested following reports by communities while some were arrested at the scene of the crime.
“Some of the arrested suspects have been convicted with others still standing trial in courts,” he said.
He, however, revealed that the command had recovered over N12.5 million vandalised property and smuggled goods.
Indabawa also listed the achievements of the command to include foiling the attempt to kidnap students of Federal University Dutsinma (FUDMA), dismantling of illegal and quack private security operators as well as rapid response to disaster.
“Other remarkable success stories achieved by the Command are the maintenance of 24/7 surveillance of infrastructures, sites and projects of governments, peace and conflict resolution,” he said.
