The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps Commandant-General (CG), Dr Ahmed Audi has dissolved Anti-Vandalism Units across the country.
Audi gave the order for the dissolution of the Anti-Vandalism Units at a meeting with senior officers and all state Commandants of the corps in Abuja on Tuesday.
Audi said there have been insinuations and reports that security operatives were likely involved in oil theft and related crimes.
“There are also reports that our officers are doing their jobs, but not satisfactorily enough,” he stated.
The NSCDC boss added that the disbanded squad would be reconstituted in due time for better service delivery.
He noted that the issue of oil theft had been of great concern to the Federal Government, warning that the corps would not condone sabotage or compromise in the protection of oil installations.
Audi also directed that all illegal roadblocks by the Anti-Vandalism squads be dismantled immediately.
“We have gotten information that some roadblocks were not approved, so those are the ones that will be dismantled,” he said.
A recent viral video showed some NSCDC personnel in acts of extortion.
Audi directed an investigative and disciplinary panel to look into the situation surrounding the report in the video and suggest disciplinary actions to be taken if any.
