The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps in the state has assured residents of Kaduna State and particularly the Zazzau Emirate of its readiness to provide watertight security during and after the Local government council polls slated for Saturday, 4th September, 2021.

The State Commandant, Godwin Miebi, stated when he paid a courtesy visit to the Emir of Zazzau, His Highness, Ahmad Nuhu Bamali in Zaria, Kaduna.

In a statement signed by the Corps Public Relation Officer, DSC Orndiir Terzungwe, the Commandant acknowledged significant security roles played by the traditional institution in general and the Zazzau Emirate in particular, noting that the command appreciates every support from the royal institution.

“Security agencies can hardly succeed without the support of members of the traditional institution, it is in recognition of this fact that I have come to seek the usual support of His Highness and members of your council”, Miebi explained.

Miebi said the Corps is contributing its quota in synergy with other sister agencies to ensure that the challenge of insecurity bedevilling the state is drastically reduced.

Responding, the Emir, Ambassador Nuhu Bamali expressed pleasure on the performance of the corps with other services most especially in his domain in spite of challenges of inadequate manpower and equipment.

The Royal father decried the rising incidences of banditry, describing the murder of a pregnant woman in Zaria recently as worrisome.

He said the country is passing through a difficult period, noting with optimism that the problem is however not peculiar to Nigeria alone, but global in nature, stating that with concerted efforts of all stakeholders, it would be overcome.

The Emir stressed the need for synergy and collaboration among security agencies and warned against rivalry.
