The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, FCT Commandant, Olusola Odumosu, has assured residents that vandalism of critical national assets and infrastructure in the territory will be over soon.

Odumosu gave this assurance during a visit to the Abuja Municipal Area Council, AMAC, Chairman, Christopher Maikalangu, on Friday in Abuja.

According to him, the Command would sustain its war against criminal elements in the FCT, particularly vandals who are short-changing the citizens of the dividends of democracy.

He said vandalism and theft of public property such as manhole covers, street lights, traffic lights, roads, bridges and water dams would be eradicated in the FCT.

The commandant said on assumption of duty, he declared war on vandals and had recorded successes in that area.

“Several arrests have been made within the city centre and some of the suspects charged to court.

“The war is not yet won but we are determined to double our efforts until we bring an end to vandalism in the FCT,” Odumosu said.

He stated he was dedicated to keying into the NSCDC safe school programme of ensuring adequate protection of schools across the territory.

He, therefore, sought the support of the Chairman for the corps to achieve optimum performance and effective delivery of its mandate as enshrined in its Act.

On his part, the AMAC Chairman assured the commandant of his continuous support in ensuring the mandates of the Corps were achieved in the FCT.

According to him, the NSCDC has proved its capacity to work effectively as an independent body and in collaboration with sister agencies.
