NSCDC Boss Orders Full Investigation Into Benue Shootings, Invites State Commandant For Questioning

The recent shootings by an Officer of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corp-NSCDC has continued to attract lots of mixed reactions especially as Nigerians demand justice in this regard. However, the Commandant General of NSCDC, CG Abdullahi Muhammadu Gana has since yesterday ordered a full scale Investigation into the matter, assuring that justice must take it's place.


In statement issued by CG Abdullahi Muhammadu Gana, he stated emphatically that the misconduct of Sunday Adakole Ada, a staff of the Nigeria Civil Defense and Security Corps, who allegedly killed two youths in Otukpo on Christmas Day wasn't the ideal Character of a trained Agro Ranger, a special unit of the NSCDC.

The office of the CG has however invited the Benue state Commandant, as he assured Nigerians and especially the people of Benue State to maintain calm and continue to support the operations of Agro Rangers Unit, so as to ensure the adequate provision of security in areas of safety for lives and properties especially in vulnerable communities.


According to reports, Officer Sunday Adakole shot one Jennifer Robert and a young man during their routine patrol. In defence, the suspected Adakole who is currently in custody narrated that he was only trying to warm the air. He says, "I was only on patrol with my team when I decided to warm the air.
"After that, I was told one person died and one other injured. It was not intentional".

However, the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corp-NSCDC Agro Ranger Unit has continue to make progressive improvements in areas of providing adequate security for lives and properties especially for farmers and their farmlands. Their operations in recent times have been applauded and commended by several persons, Institutions and groups.
