“Our aim is to continue to ensure public safety, we are carrying out this exercise as directed by the  Commandant General of the NSCDC, Mohammed Gana.

“We received a message from the people and NTA management  in our office  that hoodlums are always using the forest at the back of NTA Abeokuta to perpetrate evil.

“We have visited the forest with our Agro Rangers and Counter Terrorist Unit (CTU) who were specifically trained to deal with forest issues,” he said.
