In a bid to proffer solutions to the uprising cases of abduction, banditry and kidnapping of School Students and Teachers, the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Ondo State Command has commenced Security Training for Schools in Ondo State.
The Ondo NSCDC State Commandant, Dr Hammed Abodunrin led a team of Resource Persons from the Command to the Federal Government Girls College, Akure during the week to train about 300 Staff members and 2,000 Students on “School Security and Personal Protection”.
Dr Hammed who is a renowned Child/Women Right advocate took his time to educate the female students and staff of the school on basic security tips to enhance personal protection both within and outside the School’s terrain. He noted that “the best form of Security is the one provided for oneself as only those who wears the shoe knows where it pinches” He called on the School management to provide detective gadgets such as CCTV cameras, metal detectors, alarm systems and lightnings across all paths as criminal acts thrive more in dark and unlit areas.
Abodunrin further charged Teachers, Parents and Guardians to imbibe the culture of educating their wards on personal security protection as this would broaden their knowledge on security and ameliorate the menace of Insecurity in our environment.
The training session witnessed free distribution of First Aid Kits to Staff and Students of Federal Government Girls College Akure to make them Fist aid responders during emergencies. Officers who delivered lectures as resource persons were drawn from Training Department, Disaster management Department, ICT, Antihuman Trafficking, illegal migration and Gender Unit of the Command.
The Principal of the school, Mrs Lawal Adenike, who spoke with much excitement lauded the Management and Personnel of the Ondo NSCDC for their pragmatic approach in tackling insecurity in the State; affirming that the security training has positively impacted her and the school will continue to partner with the Security Agencies to make Ondo State a safe haven for all dwellers.
