AbaKALIKI—New Commandant of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps, NSCDC, Ebonyi State Command, Adeyinka Fasiu has ordered vandals to desist from vandalizing petroleum pipelines across the state as the command would no longer tolerate such act in the state.

He stressed that anybody caught in the act would be punished according to the law. According to him, his administration would uphold the core mandates of the corps, which include anti-vandalism, monitoring and supervision of the Private Guard Companies, PGC, fight against kidnapping and anti-terrorism and adulteration of petroleum products.
He said: “I have to follow the core mandate of the corps in terms of anti vandalization drive, the monitoring and supervising of the Private Guard Companies, PGC, and the issue of kidnapping and terrorism. I am going to reach out to all my men in the 13 LGAs of the state to put in place 24 hour monitoring and surveillance of all these vandals so as to checkmate them.”
