NSCDC intensifies patrol against cultists planning 7/7 anniversary and beyond —– Lagos Commandant

The Nigeria and Civil Defence Corps () says it is intensifying  its patrols across the state aimed at  protecting  its residents against any planned terrorism by any cult.

The   State commandant , Mr Adeyinka  Ayinla, said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria  (NAN) on Tuesday in .

NAN reports that  the commandant  was speaking on the heels of an intelligence report that indicated that some illegal groups are warming up for their annual anniversary.

It would be recalled that some cults that normally celebrate their annual anniversaries are : ‘Aiye’ Confraternity,’ on July  7  and ‘Buccaneer’ on Aug.  8 across the South-West states.

Ayinla said the command had started  a- 24-hour daily monitoring and surveillance  of  the state with a view to foiling  such plans  by any illegal groups.

He said that  such patrols by the NSCDC would also continue afterwards.

Ayinla noted that the command would work tirelessly with the other outfits, especially, the police to protect the lives of the residents of the state from the activities of such nefarious groups.

The NSCDC Lagos Command boss, however, urged all parents and guardians to monitor their children and  wards during  this period and beyond.

“Some youths are in the habits of late night walk. This command is using this opportunity to caution all parents to put their children in order.

” All parents must also caution their children  against bad friends and peer groups  as we all know that evil corrupts good manners,” he said.

He further said the NSCDC would not hesitate to handle members of the nefarious groups to the police for prosecution in the  court of law when caught .

“Surely, they will face stiff penalties if  caught by the NSCDC and other agencies ,” he warned.
