NSCDC Officials Assaulted By Blackmarketers


Kerosene black marketers and fuel attendants at the Dutse NNPC mega-station unleashed their anger on four officials of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, in Jigawa State as they were beaten to stupor, and their official vehicle smashed.

Investigations revealed that men of the NSCDC went to the station where they discovered improprieties in the sale of kerosene which made them direct the attendants to adhere to the arrangement that would enable other people procure the commodity.

This, sources say, led to a disagreement with the attendants and black marketers as they pounced on the NSCDC men and beat three of them while the fourth received knife cuts.

As efforts to contact the state Commandant of the NSCDC, proved abortive, one of the senior officials of the corps who spoke on condition of anonymity confirmed that four of their personnel brutalized at the mega station are currently receiving treatment in a hospital in Dutse, Jigawa State capital.
