The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps NSCDC have dissolved all anti-vandal teams nationwide.

The Commandant-General of the NSCDC, Dr. AHMED AUDI, announced the dissolution shortly before a meeting with 36 States Commandants and the FCT Commandant as well as top Management Members of the Corps at its headquarters in Abuja.

He said the Minister of Interior, OGBENI RAUF AREGBESOLA approved the dissolution of the unit due to the uninspiring performance of the unit in the past few months and the need to sanitize and bring fresh ideas and perspectives to the operations of the unit.

AUDI explained that following unprecedented reports of crude oil thefts, vandalism of critical national infrastructures, and collusion of some personnel with criminals, the government had come to the inevitable conclusion that the present Anti Vandal Unit cannot deliver on its mandate.

AUDI added that all unapproved roadblocks mounted by NSCDC personnel across the country are also dissolved with immediate effect.
