The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has trained a specialised female squad for schools’ protection.

The squad would be deployed to schools nationwide to curtail security threats on educational institutions.

A statement by the NSCDCspokesperson, Olusola Odumosu, said the commandant general, Ahmed Audi, disclosed the development at a train-the-trainer workshop on Tuesday in Abuja.

Mr Audi advised the unit to remain focused, resilient and committed to the security of schools, the protection of students and staff.

Represented by Nnamdi Nwinyi, deputy commandant general, Crisis and Disaster Management, Mr Audi said the corps had developed strategic plans to enhance security nationwide.

He charged the trainees to expand their capacity by engaging in critical thinking to arrive at more robust ideas and solutions to achieve safety in schools.

He said that the corps had developed a robust template that would crystallise into more precise action to tackle hostilities and achieve sustainable, safe schools in Nigeria.

In his remark, the chief executive officer of Supersonic Limited, Frank Ohwofa, appreciated the corps for granting his company the opportunity to facilitate the training.

He charged participants to take advantage of the training to build on their knowledge and experiences in the field.

Mr Ohwofa advised state commandants to pass down the knowledge and skills acquired during the training to all personnel under them.
