Speaking on the awards for the duo, Bridget Agada, the secretary of the award planning committee said Audie embarked on various structural and institutional reforms in the paramilitary agency.

Agada said Audi in his stay as the commandant-general of the NSCDC has made operations of the corps more effective and highly efficient.

She said:

"The high-point of his strategic reform was repositioning the NSCDC to stepping into the gap in our quest for a better secured Nigeria. A gap necessitated by the overstretched security formations across the country."

She said that the successes witnessed by the NSCDC in partnering with other relevant security agencies to successfully repel bandits attacks across the country have been attributed to the resilience and firm leadership of Audi.

Agada added:

"It is to the credit of Audi-led NSCDC that so many schools in Nigeria today has continued to learn under a peaceful atmosphere".

She added that Rev. Pam has consistently used his office to preach peace, emphasising that the nation's unity is non-negotiable.

Agada said:

"At a time the country's corporate existence is being threatened by insurgency, insurrection and other criminal vices, it takes men of courage like Pam to speak out in support of one, united, indivisible Nigeria."

Criminals have informants among security operatives

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that Audi had confirmed the fears of some Nigerians that several security operatives are aiding bandits in their operations.

The boss of the NSCDC noted that some personnel in the various security agencies give vital information to criminal elements.

Many Nigerians have in the past, questioned how bandits, terrorists and criminals know the movement of security operatives.

NSCDC deploy high tech security equipment to curb crime

The deployment of high-tech security equipment by the new leadership of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has not gone unnoticed.

The National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN) says the initiative will curb crime, as well protect lives and properties.

NSCDC's leadership has been at the forefront of using technology to fight crimes in the society.
