41 private guarding companies have been issued with operational licenses by the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).

The licenses have been issued to help enhance crime prevention capabilities across the region and ensure the protection of lives and property.

“National security must not be sacrificed”

The operational licenses were presented by Commandant General, Ahmed Audi, in Abuja on 27 July.

According to Solacebase, Audi commented: “Use your experience to promote public interest and socio-economic growth, which only thrives in a crime-free environment.

“As you join the league of players in this industry, you should not compromise standards as the provisions of the PGC Act and regulation must be strictly adhered to.

“National security must not be sacrificed on the altar of pursuit for business profit.”

Operators have been urged to share intelligence information.
