Commandant General of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Abdullahi Gana Muhammadu, has approved the deployment of 2,000 personnel of the corps for the re-run elections in Rivers State.
The corps’ spokesman, Emmanuel Okeh, said in a statement yesterday that one Assistant Commandant General (ACG) and four Commandants were also deployed.
He said the CG had directed the Assistant Commandant General in charge of Zone E, Owerri, Alhaji Abdullahi Lapai, to relocate to Port-Harcourt to oversee the operations in the re-run election.
Oke added that in his directive to the personnel, Gana noted that the corps had a significant role to play before, during and after the elections.
” I trust that the strong presence of the NSCDC personnel with other security operatives in the Rivers State re-run election will bring about a hitch-free election, as all focus will be on the election,” he said.
