The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) Abia Command, says it has deployed 2,500 operatives in strategic locations in the state ahead of the Easter celebration.
This is contained in a statement by the Command’s spokesman DSC Agu Ndukwe, and issued to newsmen on Friday in Umuahia.
He said the operatives were deployed in strategic locations across the 17 Local Government Areas of the state.
According to Ndukwe, the operatives comprised 2,000 personnel recently trained on Counter-Terrorism, Strategic Peace Building and Conflict Resolution in Abuja and 500 others from various units of the command.
“They will work closely with the command’s Rapid Response Squad, Counter-Terrorism Unit and other Tactical Teams to ensure a hitch-free Easter celebration,” he added.
The commandant also warned the operatives to be firm, tactful, civil and professional in their dealings with the public during the celebration.
Ndukwe also charged the public to remain law abiding and report any suspicious movement to the nearest security agency for quick response.
