The attention of the Corps has been drawn to a publication in an online media where the writer erroneously wrote “military personnel” in a press statement credited to the Delta State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), on the above subject.
The NSCDC, Delta State Command, is still in shock over the publication, which grossly misrepresented the original content of the press release issued by the Command PRO, dated 11th June, 2022 and wishes to seize this opportune moment to clarify without any equivocation that, there was nowhere the military was mentioned as part of those sponsoring, aiding and abetting crude oil theft, pipeline vandalism, illegal refineries, illegal dealing in petroleum products and economic sabotage in the region.

Saddened by this misrepresentation of fact, the Delta State Commandant, Iskilu Akinsanya, expressed his concern and disappointment over the misguided writeup and therefore, distanced himself, the State Command or the Commandant General from the spurious report which did not in any way represent the views of the Delta State Command or that of the NSCDC top management at the National Headquarters, Abuja.
The Corps is a full fledged paramilitary agency of government which has over the years, maintained and sustained a robust relationship, synergy and effective collaboration with the military and the paramilitary agencies in the state and across the country, hence, will on no account be involved in any attempt to drag their integrity in the mud.

While expressing regret for any negative impact, the online publication, which is a figment of the writer’s imagination may have caused, the Corps wishes to once again assure the Nigerian military of its continuous respect and cooperation in any way it may be required in the cause of promoting National Security and the safety of Nigerians.
The online publisher acted in error and has since apologized for his mistakes.
