The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC Osun State Command, has advised students, particularly females, to always expose anybody that abuses them.
The Zonal Commander in charge of Zone J, Assistant Commandant General, Fasiu Adeyinka, gave the advice in Osogbo at the first anniversary of the Special Female Squad of NSCDC.
Represented by the Deputy Commandant of Corps, Sanusi Saliu, Mr Adeyinka noted that it was imperative for all to fight both external and internal forces that threaten the peaceful atmosphere in schools across the country.
Mr Adeyinka, who lauded the Commandant General for deeming it fit to establish the squad, described him as a true father who felt there was a need to put an end to kidnapping and banditry activities within and around schools across the country.
The State Commandant, Mr Sunday Agboola, represented by his second-in-command, Deputy Commandant of Corps, Adeoti Joseph, also commended the CG for the initiative, describing him as a visionary leader and a lover of children.
Noting that children are leaders of tomorrow, Mr Agboola said it was expedient to protect them from both internal and external attacks.
He said the establishment of the Special Female Squad was never by accident, saying that God knows the trained female officers have a special assignment in the development of the country.
In a lecture entitled, ‘Effects of Safe School on Gender-Base Violence, a Stakeholder Lola Way’, observed that a nation cannot experience peace if the rights of the female gender are wantonly abuse.
She called on children to break the silence when they are being violated, saying when you see something, say something and do something.
