Following its intelligence lead, personnel of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) Borno State Command have intercepted two trucks loaded with vandalised items in the State.
This was disclosed by the Commandant Musa Farouk, during a media briefing in Maiduguri, capital of Borno State and it was monitored by Security Watch Africa (SWA).
According to the Commandant, sixteen persons were behind the ferrying.
He said they presented a letter purportedly issued by Naval Base in Baga.
He said “The Corps through its intelligence network intercepted two trucks load of vandalised items from Baga Town which includes bedding materials belonging to Federal College of Fresh Water Fisheries, Naval equipments, roofing sheets, doors, windows among others.”
He added that about three (3) trucks are on their watch list from Baga to Maiduguri.
He said “The perpetrators popularly called (Ajakuta) numbering (16) sixteen, presented a letter from the Naval Base Baga on whose authority they were ferrying the quantum of items.”
Expressing optimism that the Corps is winning the war against the criminal enterprise, he said, the NSCDC will not rest on its oars until justice prevails.
Investigation into the matter, he said, is still ongoing to unravel their collaborators and to substantiate the source of the letter.
Stressing that security is a collective enterprise, he said “We must collaborate to achieve our common goals.”
