Boko Haram: NSCDC Set Out 2,000 For Counter Insurgency War




Our correspondents unraveled the revelations of why over 2,000 officers of Nigerian Security and Civil Defense Corps, NSCDC, the asset safety outfit Set out of the counter insurgency war, after several millions of naira in tax payers money was expended in their training.


The findings which is not specific to the prosecution of the war by NSCDC on the Adamawa front, revealed that, the current financial hardship faced by most states government was affecting, some states in the North East from meeting security commitments.

A development that propelled Adamawa command of the NSCDC to pulled out from the war against insurgency in the state because its men were not adequately motivated National Mirror can authoritatively report.

The state commandant of the NSCDC , Mr Mohammed A. Duromi Iya revealed this piece of "sensitive security information" said his men who were the first in the history of the NSCDC to be engaged in war, had to pull out of the counter insurgency war because "nobody is taking care of them."

He said his outfit was still been owed 18 weeks of unpaid allowances which has remained unpaid since the last administration of the Governor Bala Ngillari.

He said even though his men have meet with the state government however, it appears that because the state was deep in debt the state could not honour its commitments even in important matters of security.

Mohammed explained that at the height of the insurgency war, NSCDC had no fewer than 120 of its personnel at the theater of war, " at the time our men were been giving N5,000 per week" which he noted was not commensurate with what this men were doing.

He maintained that the personnel who were sent in batches of 40 to the war front were at every point led by at least one out of the 2,000 that received counter insurgency training in Isreal and South Africa.

The state commandant said not less than 2,000 NSCDC personnel were taken to Isreal and South African and every time we are going to that battle it is one of them that will led the team.

On his expectation that the issue would soon be resolved by the new administration in the state, Mohammed observed that will depend on how soon the state came out of its financial challenge.

" We held that meeting, he (Bindow) said ok , we would continue it. But till now, we have not heard anything," Mohammed said.

He noted that after the bomb blast in Yola his men were drafted to be stationed around the blast site and also to beef up security in sensitive areas but the absence of funds to support the operations had stalled the engagement.

Mohammed said with adequate funding his organisation would have excelled better in countering insurgency, maintaining that there were days when locals in the troubled areas of Gombi relied on the assurances of his personnel for safety as well as carry on with their lawful businesses.
