The NSCDC Public Relations Officer (PRO) in thestate, Dyke Ogbonnaya, made this known in a statement in Abeokuta on Wednesday.
”The corps has deployed its professional and tactical teams such as Agro-Rangers, Counterterrorist and Critical Infrastructure Protection Unit to forstall crime during the festive period,” Ogbonnaya said.
He said that the NSCDC was ready to partner other security agencies to ensure safety of lives and property before, during and after the celebration.
“The state commandant has urged residents of the state to be security conscious and report suspicious moves or criminal activities to the appropriate or nearby security agency for proper investigation.
