The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), under the leadership of Olusola Odumosu, the FCT Commandant, has intensified its efforts in intelligence gathering to improve security within the territory.

In an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Abuja, Odumosu revealed that the command has embarked on collaborative measures with Private Guard Companies (PGCs) to enhance intelligence collection.

Emphasising the importance of robust intelligence gathering techniques for ensuring the safety and security of residents, Odumosu highlighted the strategic partnership with PGCs as a pivotal aspect of the security architecture in the region.

“Just as the NSCDC have a comparative advantage in information gathering, so are private guards, because they are closer to the people at the grassroots.

“Their spread and constant interaction with the public while rendering services in protecting private and government facilities provided an advantage in knowing happenings within their territory,” he said.

He noted that the NSCDC’s divisional officers and commanders are now working closely with PGCs to facilitate extensive and timely intelligence sharing.

Odumosu stressed the significance of citizens’ involvement in reporting suspicious activities to security agencies.

Acknowledging the limitations in manpower and coverage, Odumosu urged well-meaning Nigerians and FCT residents to act as additional eyes and ears for the NSCDC in areas beyond its immediate reach.

He assured that all information provided to the corps would be handled confidentially and shared with the appropriate authorities for proactive intervention against security threats. (NAN) www.nannews.ng
