Osun Guber: NSCDC Imports 15 IEDs Detecting Dogs From USA


The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) on Thursday said it had imported 15 dogs trained in detecting Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), composed with certain chemicals from the United States of America to boost security August 9 Osun gubernatorial election.
The Deputy Commandant General, Operation, Mr Evans Ewurum, who disclosed this while addressing newsmen at the Osun State Command of the Civil Defence Corps, gave a matching order to political touts hired to distrupt the exercise to vacate the environment before 6pm on Friday, to avoid being disgraced.

Ewurum, who gave the warning signal, however, promised that the Corps, in carrying out the threat, would do so with the highest level of discipline.
While reiterating that his agency had deployed no fewer than 20,000 armed and unarmed personnel drawn from neighbouring states and from its national headquarters to ensure maximum security during and after the election, Ewurum warned the personnel against collecting gratification of any sort from politicians, adding that anyone who indulged in such risk would be outrightly dismissed.
His words, we are not here to give birth to Ceazer but to burry Ceazer. Our job here is to ensure that the vote counts. We are not unawarek that politicians have massively engaged unemployed youths as touts from within and neighbouring states to infiltrate the state in order to disrupt the exercise.
We want to alert them that Osun election is not for criminals, touts and other criminals. Our Commandant General has given necessary incentives to our officer as a strategy to avert possible collection of gratification, which is not in our character.
We all know that the state is already tensed. To this effect, the Civil Defence is here in full force to ensure that there is adequate peace and protection of Osun citizens, electorates and the electoral materials, as well as INEC officials.
