The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corp (NSCDC), has deployed 50 motorcycles to its Taraba Command to be used for patrol in troubled areas of the state.
The information was disclosed by the State Commandant of the NSCDC in Taraba, Alhaji Kamilu Isah, in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
He said the motorcycles would be used by its operatives in combating insecurity in areas such as Takum, Mambilla and Lau.
“Adequate arrangement have been made for fuelling and maintenance of the motorcycles which will encourage my men to tackle criminality in difficult terrains.
“Security equipment including bullet proof vests, boots, helmets, shocking batons were also provided to the command.
“Other gadgets that will not be disclosed for security reasons were also provided by the Commandant General,’’ he said.
He also disclosed they won’t be working in isolation, but would collaborate with other security outfits in the state.
“We have been working as brothers and sisters. We share information, we consult one another; we are a family with a common goal.”
Naija News earlier reported that President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered operatives of the NSCDC to ensure protection for schools in the North East so as to prevent any form of attack on them.
