“To realize this objective, a total of 5000 personnel have been trained while some are still undergoing training at the NSCDC College of Peace and Strategic Studies, Katsina. 300 of them have been deployed to Taraba state to support the effort of the government towards ensuring food production in the state and the entire nation.”
