As the general election approaches, the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has bought sniffer dogs from the United States of America (USA).
The canines can detect any Improvised Explosive Device (IED).
More of such dogs, according to the corps, are still being expected to assist 500 others to monitor security before, during and after the elections.
NSCDC Deputy Commandant General (DCG) Operations, Evans Ewurum disclosed this in Abuja on NSCDC road map to next month’s election.
He said: “there should be no fear about the forthcoming elections. UNDP alongside the US are partnering with Nigeria in training and in other areas to ensure that the election is free and fair.
“In no distance the issue of Boko Haram will be over. The polity should not be over hitted. We cannot disclose all our plans to the media because when Boko Haram are planning they do not go to the media.”
Commandant General of NSCDC, Dr. Ade Abolurin who was represented at the event by the Deputy Commandant General (DCG), administration, Suliman Bello assured that there is synergy within other security agencies.
