The Anambra State command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps has arrested 13 private security guards for illegal provision of security services without registration and operating with an expired license in the state.

According to a statement on Wednesday, the state commandant of NSCDC, Chukwudi Chikere, said the arrest followed the resolve by the Corps to rid the state of quacks and unregistered operators.

Chikere said the move will streamline the private guard business by ensuring strict compliance with the law governing the sector.

The statement was signed by the Public Relations Officer, DSC Okadigbo Edwin on behalf of the state commandant.

It said the state Commandant has ordered the Intelligence and Investigation department to conduct a thorough investigation as soon as possible before the suspects would be charged to court.

The statement read, “Today’s operation is in line with the statutory mandate of NSCDC to inspect, license, train and monitor the activities of private guards’ companies.

“Our aim is to uproot all illegal private security guards in the state thereby creating a conducive atmosphere for registered ones to operate without hindrance.
