NSCDC issues licenses to 24 private security organizations and is looking for information on offenders.


Dr Ahmed Audi, the Commandant-General of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, has issued operational licenses to 24 private security businesses in Abuja.

He stated that the Corps was dedicated to eradicating quackery in the private security industry and sanitizing the system for effective security service delivery, complementing government agencies’ efforts to address current security concerns.

The CG reprimanded the operators to regard the license as an opportunity to assist nip crime in the bud in the country when presenting the licenses to the successful enterprises.

The CG enjoined the firms to collaborate with security agencies to provide actionable and accurate intelligence needed to deal with the country’s current security challenges, according to a statement by NSCDC spokesman Shola Odumosu on Thursday titled, “NSCDC issues 24 operational licences to private guards companies.”

“As stakeholders in the protection of lives and property, let us join hands to safeguard our future and that of future generations, and to make our country better and safer because, without a doubt, a secure environment will engender socio-economic development of the country,” Audi is quoted as saying.

He stated that the Corps has reached an agreement to make its training facilities available to private security organizations for the training, capacity building, and manpower development of its personnel.
The operators were admonished by the Corps to avoid any corrupt tendencies and not to yield to any sort of pressure or negative influence that could jeopardize their companies’ integrity.

“On the issue of guard welfare, Dr Audi charged the operatives to ensure that they are paid their salaries and all entitlements as and when due, to avoid any form of compromise, stressing that if security providers are not well remunerated, such guards are easily lured with money or any juicy offer by criminals,” according to the statement.

Chairman of Pareto Smartwork Nig. Ltd, Amb Godwin Umoh, spoke on behalf of the operators and praised the NSCDC head for the quick and open screening procedure.

He went on to say that technology should be used in security management since “human intelligence cannot be completely relied upon, especially where personnel is woefully inadequate.”
