NSCDC Inaugurates Agro Ranger Squad in Oyo
Nigeria security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC Oyo state command has inaugurated agro ranger squad in tackling security challenges.
The squad was launched today at NSCDC headquarters, Ibadan by the state commandant, Alhaji Iskilu Akinsanya.
While introducing the squad, Alhaji Akinsanya said the aim of the federal government for introducing the unit was to forestall attacks on farms and boost farmer’s confidence to work without fear.
