Awili noted that the corps and other sister security agencies were working in synergy to bring criminal activities in the state to its barest minimum.

“We have been able to relax the issue of banditry and herders and farmers clash.

“The CG of NSCDC has ordered us to ensure there is no crime anywhere in the state and we are appealing to the people of Kaduna to be peaceful, as the government mean well for its people,” he said.

Awili also called on traditional leaders to ensure peace in their domain.

The zonal commander urged citizens to strive to share useful information to the NSCDC and other sister security agencies, to enable them clamp down on perpetrators of crime.
