“This quarterly training is to keep them abreast of modern security tactics with a view to achieving grass root security, especially as we approach Yuletide when crimes are always on the increase.

“As the Commandant-General, , always says,“the best form of security is self-defence, you must be able to defend yourself before you defend others.

“All private security guards must, therefore, be proactive and rise up against the current security challenges, especially with the new tactics devised by Boko Haram insurgents to cause havoc by any means,”he said.

Abdullahi explained that the command had drawn a training curriculum that would inculcate in the trainees, the act of professionalism and efficiency in protection of lives and property.
