Seven personnel of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) were ambushed and killed alongside five others from a sister security agency and local security service.

The personnel who were attached to the Kaduna State Ministry of Mines were ambushed and killed by bandits while on official duty at a mining site in Birnin Gwari Local Council Area.

According to Director, Public Relations, NSCDC, Olusola Odumosu, he said the incident took place on Monday, January 9, 2023 at about 10.p.m.

He said after the attack, the bandits carted away riffles of the slain operatives. The remains of the slain officers and men have been recovered and deposited at the Barau Diko Hospital Kaduna.

NSCDC Commandant General (CG), Dr. Ahmed Audi, described the unfortunate incident as a big loss to the Corps, families of the victims and the nation.
He commiserates with the families and friends of the deceased and prays that God grants them the fortitude to bear the irreplaceable loss.

In honour of the deceased personnel, the CG has directed that the Corps’ flag be hoisted at half-mast and that a national prayer involving both Christians and Muslims be organised at the Corps’ National headquarters, Abuja, to pray for Gods protection for all officers and men of the Corps in the new year and avert a recurrence of such awful incident.
