Families Of Slain NSCDC Personnels Are Automatically Hired

by Echezona obinna

Ahmed Audi, the Commandant General of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, has expressed condolences to the families of seven troops who were ambushed by bandits in Birnin Gwari, Kaduna State.
During a condolence visit to bereaved families at the NSCDC Kaduna Command Headquarters on Thursday, the CG revealed that the corps had previously lost officers in the line of duty, but not as many as in the Birnin-Gwari terrible incident.

He later gave cheques for undisclosed sums of money to the next-of-kin of the seven slain heroes as a show of support while their earned benefits were being paid.

He also promised that each family will be given one job as a replacement for the dead officers.

This was contained in a statement signed by the Corps spokesperson, Olusola Odumosu, on Thursday.

ANAEDOONLINE.NG reports that seven NSCDC officials were killed in an attack at a Kuriga mining site in Kaduna state on January 9, 2023.


Five other security operatives attached to a sister agency were said to have been killed in the same incident.
Audi, who described the killing as colossal, however, charged other personnel not to be deterred by the ugly incident.
The CG said, “Death is inevitable; it is heartbreaking to lose personnel.

“Although this is not the first time we are losing personnel, it’s so painful that we’ve lost seven personnel at a time.

“It is a great loss, and that is why I am here personally, to encourage all of you to continue to do your best and not give up.”

The Corps helmsman hinted that he had initiated the process of payment of death benefits and other entitlements to the affected officers through the office of the Minister of Interior to ameliorate the pains of those they left behind.

He explained that the Corps had been paying burial benefits, entitlements, accident benefits, and group life insurance policies to personnel as and when due.

He said that upon his assumption of duty as CG about two years ago, the backlog of salaries and arrears had been cleared, with a few pending, which would soon be settled.
