Commandant General, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps(NSCDC), Dr. Ahmed Abubakar Audi on Monday, charged Private Guards Companies to be professional and adhere to the guiding rules of the corps.
In a statement on Monday by DCC Olusola Odumosu, Director, Public Relations, said having been given the mandate to monitor, regulate and license the Private Guard Companies, the NSCDC was determined to continue to encourage and support efficiency, effectiveness, probity and accountability in the Private Security Industry.
This, according to him, would ensure that they carry out their operations in conformity with laid down rules and regulations to bring sanity to bear on the industry and eliminate activities of quacks.
He said the move was due to the prevailing security situation in the country, especially in the Northeast.
He said, ”Private Security Industry has a significant role to play in assisting Security Agencies of Government in their collective effort towards addressing and checkmating the dangerous trend of insecurity which has led to the loss of lives and properties.
