The Commandant General of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Dr. Ahmed Abubakar Audi, has said about 80 per cent of schools in Nigeria are vulnerable.  

He said the vulnerability studies conducted by the NSCDC in 21,000 schools showed that 16,000 were porous.  

He stated this Friday in Abuja while speaking at the 1st Nigerian Private Security Industry Summit.  

At the event, the Director General of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Ahmed Rufai Abubakar, called for a legislative framework to empower private licensed security personnel to bear arms in the country.  

Abubakar represented by an official of the agency, Mr Ayuba Kadafar, said private licensed security companies should also be legally empowered to carry out VIP protection, private investigation, escort duties and use of bullet proof verse.  

Declaring the summit open, the Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, said that the federal government was taking steps to formally integrate licensed private security companies into the national security architecture.  

Aregbesola, represented by his Senior Special Adviser on Strategy and Innovation, Prof. Ademola Adeyinka, solicited the support of private licensed companies in tracking fleeing inmates.
