Airport closure: NSCDC establishes 15 outposts to secure Abuja-Kaduna Road
Following the relocation of air services to Kaduna Airport from the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has established 15 outposts along Abuja-Kaduna road which cover Zuba, Bwari, Jere, Kadua routes among others, to ensure security of the roads for six weeks.
This was disclosed by the Commandant General, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Alhaji Abdulahi Gana Muhammadu in his office at the Corps National Headquarters, Abuja.
According to him, the decision to establish the 15 outpost along Abuja-Kaduna Road was borne out of the need to provide security during the six weeks that operations at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja would be moved to Kaduna Airport.
“We are doing all within our powers to strengthen relationship with relevant stakeholders in order to achieve the desired result,” he said.
Gana also assured motorists travelling to the northern part of the country that the corps had mapped out strategies to ensure security along the road.
