The newly deployed State Commandant of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Anambra State Command, Olatunde A. Maku on Tuesday , January 16, 2024 charged officers overseeing various formation of the Command to cage and dominate their area of responsibility against crimes and criminality.

In his maiden meeting with Area Commanders, Heads of Department and Unit, Divisional Officers, Formation Commanders at the State Headquarters Awka, the State NSCDC boss conveyed his delight at the goodwill exhibited by Officers and men since his arrival.

He expressed satisfaction with the conduct of some personnel, but, however, said he would not tolerate indiscipline in any form, including lateness to work , indiscriminate posting of official matters in the social media and improper dressing.

Mr. Maku said he has fair knowledge of the Command challenges but assured that they were surmountable. Nevertheless, he reaffirmed his mission as the State Commandant was not to undo what had been done by his predecessors but to seek to improve the fortunes of the Corps.

While asserting that superintending Officers will be held accountable for any deviant behavior of their subordinates, he warned that necessary measures will be meted out on defaulters.

“We have been empowered to work for the masses, provide them with adequate security and restore their confidence in the NSCDC. So, I expect everyone to bring ideas and best practices that will help to reposition the corps in order to achieve its mandates,” he said.

Speaking further, the NSCDC State helmsman assured that he would soon resuscitate the Civil Defence Officers Wives Association (CDOWA) and establish monitoring and evaluation unit to ensure compliance of officers and men in line with the standard operating procedures of the Corps across the state.

Describing intelligence gathering as the hub of proactive policing to bolster the Corp’s image, Mr. Maku charged officers and men to spread their tentacles in all the nooks and crannies of the state, obtain actionable intel for necessary proactive measures to mitigate crimes and criminality in the state.

On the activities of Private Guard Company (PGC), the state command boss stated his willingness to streamline their operations to root out quacks and unregistered ones among them.
