ABUJA, (CAJ News) – ABDULLAHI Gana Muhammadu, the Commandant General of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), has condemned the killing of some operatives of the Department of State Security (DSS) by alleged vandals in Konu.

They were shot dead in this border town between Arepo in Ogun State and Ikorodu, Lagos State, this past weekend.

The pipeline vandals reportedly ambushed the operatives in what officials described as a “bloody encounter.”

Muhammadu sent his condolence message to DSS.

“I learned with great sadness and shock the news of the killing of DSS operatives by suspected pipeline vandals,” he said.

He said the NSCDC condemned in the strongest possible terms the criminal attack.

“I would like to present my deep and heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims, the Government and the DSS.”

Muhammadu has thus directed tightened security measures in all critical infrastructure of government to guard against such incidents.

He therefore declared war against vandals, warning them to steer clear of government infrastructure or face the full weight of the consequences of their actions.

He mentioned the critical infrastructure to include among others, petroleum pipelines, gas installations, telecommunication facilities and transport facilities such as rails and roads. – CAJ News
