The Commandant-General of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Dr Ahmed Audi, has disclosed that security operatives in the country are supplying informations to Bandits and other criminals to carry out successful operations.
Audi stated this while speaking at the stakeholders’ summit on the protection of critical national assets and infrastructure at the NAF Conference Centre in Abuja.
He stated that traditional rulers, religious leaders and many others have to be carried along in the fight against insecurity.
He noted that criminals are being strengthened by informants within security formations and within the society.
The NSCDC boss revealed that the upsurge in crime in the country remains a threat to National assets and critical infrastructures.
He also emphasised that security agencies have to re-strategies for improved security of national assets and protect them from assault by criminal elements.
He said; ”You will agree with me that the nefarious activities of these criminal elements are being strengthened not only by informants within security formations but equally those within the society; hence the need to engage our traditional rulers, religious, community, political and youth leaders in the process of finding a solution to this menace.”
The NSCDC boss added that critical national assets and infrastructure in Kaduna, Zamfara, Katsina, Borno and other states of the north are at risk.
According to him, Nigeria’s security agencies need to restrategize to get new methods of dealing with criminals.
