The family of late Inspector of Corps (IC ) Ilyasu Abraham, personnel of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), who died in the unfortunate attack on Kuje Medium Custodial Centre, has been presented with a total sum of N2.8m.
The cheque was presented to the family by the Commandant General ( CG ), Dr. Ahmed Abubakar Audi.
Presenting a cheque of N2.5m and the sum of N300,000 in cash to Mrs. Elizabeth Abraham and her daughter, Abimiku Blessing at the Corps National Headquarters in Abuja, Audi consoled the family, over the loss of their husband and father, who died in active service.
He explained that the money given to the family was in fulfillment of his promise to ensure that necessary compensation was given to the family in due time, stressing that, it was an intervention from the government and the Corps to assist the deceased family in ameliorating burial expenses.
He pledged his administration’s support to the family of the slain personnel and reiterated his unflinching commitment to the welfare of all officers and men of the Corps.
Audi assured the daughter of late Inspector Iliya of employment in the Corps as soon as the Federal Government gives approval for recruitment into the service.
Recall that the unfortunate incident of July 5, 2022, at Kuje Medium Custodial Center, where armed insurgents invaded the facility, resulted in the death of IC Abraham Iliya, of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Command while he was on duty.
The Commandant General assured the nation that the Corps will not be deterred from protecting Critical National Assets and Infrastructure, lives and property of law-abiding citizens, and regulation of private guards among other mandates of the Corps.
He seized the opportunity to call on Zonal Commanders, State Commandants, Area Commanders, CG’s Special Intelligence Squad, CG’s Special Anti-Vandal Squad, and Components Commanders to continue to develop new strategies as they work in synergy with other security agencies in confronting all forms of security challenges affecting our dear country, Nigeria.
Audi renewed his call on all citizens to continue to assist security agencies with useful and timely information to nip criminal activities in the bud, noting with optimism that all challenges of insecurity affecting Nigeria are surmountable.BEWARE All Rights Reserved.
