Mr Ibrahim Abdullahi, the Commander, Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in Borno, has warned grain dealers against hoarding of food items in the state.
Abdullahi gave the warning in an interview with the Nigeria News Agencyon Tuesday in Maiduguri.
He said that the call was imperative to check indiscriminate mopping up of grains in village markets to guard against artificial scarcity and price hike.
Abdullahi said that some grain dealers resorted to mopping up of grain in the markets to hoard since the closure of the national borders.
He said that the development could lead to scarcity, price hike and negatively affect food security.
The commander said that officials of the command had stopped and prevented about 20 trucks loaded with paddy rice from being transported out of the state.
“Price of food items are increasing in the market, the hike in prices might not be unconnected with the massive mop up of grain by traders.
“Urgent steps are necessary to guard against hoarding and price hike.
“We invited them and sensitized them on dangers associated with hoarding and transporting food items to other parts of the country,” he said.
Abdullahi further advocated for establishment of a committee to regulate prices of food commodities in the country.
He reiterated the commitments of the command to protect farmers to enable them cultivate thier farmlands and encourage agricultural activities in the state. (NAN)

He explained that the command carried out raid of some hotels within the metropolis, resulting to the arrest of 21 suspects for violation of the order.
According to him, the choice of the location for the raid was informed by complaints of crimes in the areas in spite of measures by security agencies.
“Credible intelligence survey reveals that Millennium city and Kigo Road are among hubs of illegalities which the command has resolved to take drastic actions in reversing the ugly trend.
“The lockdown order which is still in place requires all bars, clubs, schools and worship centres to remain shut until further directives,” he said.
Terzungwe said on completion of investigations, all the suspects will be charged to court for violation of the lockdown.

Rainy season: NSCDC warns Jigawa residents against dumping of refuse in drains
The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) , Jigawa Command, has warned residents of the state against dumping refuse in drains as the rainy season approaches.
The NSCDC Commandant in the state, Alhaji Garba Muhammad, gave the warning in a statement signed by the command’s spokesperson, Adamu Shehu, in Dutse on Thursday.
Mohammad said the warning was imperative in order to avoid flooding as the rainy season was approaching.
“With the approaching of the rainy season and the occasional rainstorm being experienced along with it over the weeks.
“Causing destructions of buildings, trees and electrical installations in many places especially within the state capital, it has shown that torrential downpour may be experienced in due course.
“As such, it has become imperative to caution the general public against blocking the drains with refuse.
“The command, therefore, warns the public against blocking drains with garbage and sand to avert flooding, which could lead to destruction of property and sometimes, lives.
“It is on this note that the the command wishes to draw the attention of members of the general public to inculcate the habit of community service in the evacuation of the already blocked drains to give way to free flow of rainwater,” the commandant said.
He advised the residents not to solely rely on the government to maintain and protect the environment from flooding.
According to him, the government has played its part by providing the drains.
COVID 19: NSCDC enhances safety of officials
The Lagos Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) on Thursday unveiled a giant anti-Coronavirus disease hand washing equipment meant to safeguard its officials.
The Lagos NSCDC commandant, Olayinka Ayinla, at the launch of the equipment in Lagos, said that the command purchased the equipment to smash unfamiliar ways of contracting the virus among its officials.
According to the commandant, some Nigerians got infected with the virus in unsuspecting ways.
Ayinla posited that many offices acquired plastic buckets embedded with water switch and liquid soap beside it to enable their staff members wash hands frequently.
“However, the effect of the hand washing pail system is that once an infected person touches the pail and the liquid-wash jar, others may get infected.
“The Lagos command of the NSCDC newly acquired hand-washing machine is controlled by legs to dispense water, liquid wash and sanitiser for hand wash ,”Ayinla said.
He, however,expressed concern over the continuous geometrical outbreaks of the pandemic in the country.
The commandant prayed that the rate of COVID-19 infections in the country should drop.
The NSCDC boss also distributed more face masks and sanitisers to officers and men, urging them to stay safe while on duty.

The PPE included, 125 infrared thermometers, 250 packs of face masks, 500 packs of hand gloves, 500 protective suits and 125 hand pumps among others.
In addition, Sambo said the NSCDC formed part of frontline workers, saying: “ they are in all isolation centres, providing support and protection to patients.
“So we treated that request from the PTF as priority and with that and purchased the items for them,’’ he said.
He said NSCDC as an international body, had the mandate for disaster management, both natural and man-made.
“We have deployed over 9,500 officers across the country to enforce, implement and we have also deployed some corps to isolation centres,’’ the commandant general said.
He cited examples of two officers who were knocked down by vehicles in an attempt to stop them during the lockdown, saying those were part of the challenges of the job.
“Unfortunately, we lost of one of them but we thank God, the other one survived after he sustained some injury and was treated,’ he said.
According to him, the donation of PPE will boost the morale of the officers.
Also speaking, the National Coordinator of the PTF, Dr Sani Aliyu, said the task force had the mandate of coordinating the delivery of resources and donations to support the fight against COVID-19 and had nine key ministries as its members.
“We had to look at our budget and found out that we did not have enough to supply to all the agencies, we then approached different agencies of government to see how they can complement what we already have.
“ Today, we are able to get NHIS to put in a contribution and direct this contribution to the agencies that we know are extremely important when it comes to the enforcement of guidelines as it relates to COVID-19,’’ he said.
The coordinator assured of continuous support for the corps, saying “ we will continue to work with you and support you.
He, however, commiserated with the management of the corps over those that lost their lives in the cause of enforcing COVID-19 guidelines and also those who were injured in the line of duty.
