NSCDC withdraws security aides from Rep Shina Peller


The security aides of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) attached to the member representing Iseyin/Itesiwaju/Iwajowa/Kajola Federal Constituency, Oyo State in the House of Representatives, Shina Abiola Peller, have been withdrawn.

This was made known in a circular released and signed Wednesday by the HOD Administration of the Oyo State Command of the agency, DCC Sotiyo Igbalawole, on behalf of the state commandant.

Sotiyo, in the circular, however, said the personnel were withdrawn for an ‘urgent national security assignment’.

The development came hours after Peller presented a bill to scrap NSCDC, proposing the police to take over the responsibilities of the NSCDC.

The bill seeks to repeal the National Security and Civil Defence Corps (Amendment) Act 2007, establish a transition management committee to superintend over the NSCDC, develop regulations and implement procedures for the transfer of assets and personnel of the corps to the Nigeria Police Force, and other related matters.

The lawmaker made the proposal to the House via the National Security And Civil Defence Corps (Repeal and Transition) Bill 2022, which passed the first reading on Tuesday.
