The Anambra State Commandant of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps Anambra State command, Mr Edwin Osuala has requested credible information from Nigerian Hunters and Forest Security Services (NHFSS), Anambra State Command to rid the State of criminals and other miscreants.

Addressing members of the NHFSS who paid him a courtesy visit at the State Command headquarters Awka, Comdt. Osuala described the Hunters as very important elements in society.

He said that the Corps would use its expertise to strengthen the operational framework in the state.

The commandant said, “As a critical stakeholder, your collaboration is vital towards providing a security-friendly environment for all Anambra residents to operate. I call on you to come forward with relevant information that will aid security agencies in the state to succeed in ridding the state of all forms of criminality.” 

Osuala who reiterated that NSCDC remained committed to the maintenance of peace and security, appealed to NHFSS to partner with the Corps and other relevant stakeholders in achieving better security in the State.

The Anambra State Commander of Nigerian Hunters and Forest Security Services, NHFSS, Titus Ogudogwo said the association despite waiting for the signing of the bill establishing it, have been rendering a series of auxiliary services to the country through collaboration with existing relevant security agencies to strengthen the internal security system.

According to him, “signing the bill into law will give the NHFSS the legal backing to chase criminals from the forests.

“Sir, as hunters, we are present in all the nooks and crannies of our forests and you will agree with me that some of these social enemies, the criminals have made the forest their place of hibernation.

We are patiently waiting for our bill to be signed in law to empower us to flush criminal elements in our ungoverned spaces which are majorly the forests, bushes and farmlands.”

He applauded the State Commandant and the command for their resilience to restore peace and normalcy in the state.
