Bandits have international sponsors -NSCDC Boss


Bandits have international sponsors, says NSCDC boss.



The Commandant General of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps, (NSCDC) Ahmed Audi, has said the bandits operating in Nigeria have international sponsors.

He said this at a training workshop for state commandants of the NSCDC which held in Abuja on Wednesday

Audu said what is required to tackle the security situation is a collaboration among security agencies in the country.

“Following how events are unfolding in the country, we are experiencing a serious conflict that I think in the history of Nigeria, this is about the first conflict that will give us a serious problem and the conflict is called asymmetric war.

“These guys are serious; these guys have international sponsors, so we need to come together,” the NSCDC boss said.

Audi advised security agencies against what he called service supremacy and rivalry which he says will be a challenge to the collaboration needed to win the war against bandits.

He added, “Civil defence will do our best to make sure that these security incidences are curbed and totally eliminated.”
