The Abia State Commandant of Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps, Ayinla Taiye Olowo, has charged his men to remain focused and committed in carrying out the corps ‘mandates which among others include protection of lives and critical national assets and infrastructure of government at all levels.
He gave the charge during a meeting he held with personnel attached to the command’s anti vandalism team at the command headquarters in Umuahia, the state capital.
Daily Trust reports that Olowo directed the men to enforce the order by Abia State Government disbanding all petroleum task force operating in the state.
“I charge you once again not only to remain focused but also ruthless to all enemies of our nation’s economy. Remember that in carrying out these important directives, rules of engagement must be strictly followed. The enviable reputation of the corps earned over the years must be jealously guarded,” he said.
