The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), on Tuesday presented employment letters to families of the seven personnel killed by bandits in Kaduna State.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that on Jan. 23, 2023, seven personnel of NSCDC Kaduna Command were ambushed and killed by bandits while on official duty in Birnin Gwari Local Government Area of the state.
The employment letters were presented to the families by the NSCDC Commandant in Kaduna State, Mr Idris Adah, on Tuesday.
Adah said the gesture was in fulfillment of the promise made by the Commandant General, Mr Ahmed Audi to the families of the deceased.
“Today it’s with joy that I present to you the CGs good deeds by handing over the appointment letters to the next of kins of the late officers.
“This is in fulfillment of the CG’s promise to the family; this however cannot replace the lives of our loved ones,” he added.
Adah therefore changed the beneficiaries to do their best and represent their families with honour and dignity.
The commandant said that the Corps remained committed to its responsibility of protecting critical national assets.
“We are working round the clock with other security agencies to fight crime in the state so that we all can sleep with our two eyes closed,” Adah said.
He warned that anyone caught vandalising critical national assets will be arrested and prosecuted.
Alhaji Baba Audi-Landan, who spoke on behalf of the beneficiaries, appreciated the CG for fulfilling the promise.
He said the appointments given to them would benefit not only the families, but society at large.
