Immigration partners NSCDC on border security in Anambra

The Anambra State Comptroller of the Nigeria Immigration Service, NIS, Godwin Nzeribe, has sought the support of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, on border security and immigration management.

Nzeribe made the call when he visited Commandant Maku Olatunde, at the NSCDC Command Headquarters, Awka on Thursday.

He said the inter-agency synergy would help address the problems of illegal migration, human trafficking, and other transnational crimes.

“Our agencies’ alignment with the Ministry of Interior necessitates a synergy to achieve our mandates effectively, in terms of enhancing border security and immigration management in the state.

“My visit to your office is to obtain briefs and to strengthen the inter-agency synergy between NIS and NSCDC.

“Thank you for your warm reception and continued collaboration with NIS,” he said.

Responding, Commandant Maku Olatunde, reaffirmed NSCDC’s commitment to collaborating with NIS.

Maku highlighted NSCDC’s achievements in protecting critical national assets, combating quackery in the private security industry, and fighting petroleum product adulteration in Anambra.

“The need for us to collaborate cannot be overemphasized, we are ready and willing to continue the existing relationship and share intelligence in achieving our mandates,” he said.
