The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Ondo State Command has deployed 1,065 personnel to beef up security in the State during the Eid-el Kabir celebration.

This was made known in a press statement by the State Public Relations Officer, Daniel Aidamenbor (ASC1).

The State Commandant, Hammed Abodunrin said that the operatives would help to keep surveillance in the 18 Local Government Areas of the State before, during and after the festival.

According to the Commandant, the Command has a special preparation for the Eid-el kabir celebration.

“This is because there will be a mass movement of the people from one place to another. There will also be heavy movement of cash and property. Also, criminal elements would upscale their activities to perpetrate crimes during the celebration.

” Our men are always on ground to monitor various part of the State for a peaceful festival. Some of them will be in uniform, while others will be in plain clothes. This will help us in gathering actionable information.” Abodunrin said.

Abodunrin admonished the people to be moderate in their celebration by shunning ostentatious displays of wealth.

” It’s not the time to spend lavishly or spray money at events. People should be wary of those moving around them aimlessly for security reasons.

” Personal Security is the best form of security, therefore put security measures in place before embarking on any journey and report any suspicious movement to the Security agents around you.” He admonished.

The Commandant also urge his personnel to be diligent and vigilant at their duty posts.

” As you protect others, you should also protect yourselves. If you are not secure, you can not secure anybody.” He said.

He also used the medium to wish the good people of Ondo State, the government and all Muslim faithful a happy Eid-el Kabir.
