Kaduna State Governor Uba Sani has launched the training of 7,000 new members of the Kaduna Vigilance Service to assist existing security agencies in their fight against kidnapping, armed robbery, and similar crimes.
According to the governor, all 23 of the state’s local government areas contributed to the 7,000 recruits currently undergoing training at the Police College, Kaduna in the state capital.
After rigorous training, he said the new recruits would help the state’s security forces combat crime.
Kaduna Vigilance Service is a supplementary security force,” the governor added. Security organizations will benefit from the actionable intelligence it provides. Because of its familiarity with the area, criminals will have nowhere to hide from it.
The governor has stated that the shortage of regular security officers across the state necessitated the recruitment, and that the beginning of training is a significant step towards his keeping his word to the people of Kaduna.
