Operatives of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) have been barred from displaying firearms in public places

A Chieftain of Action Alliance, Mr Ndubuisi Emenike was mistakenly shot dead last weekend by his security aide who is an NSCDC operative.

NSCDC’s spokesperson, Emmanuel Okeh confirmed the ban on public display of firearm during a condolence visit to a former governor of Imo state and serving senator, Rochas Okorocha over the demise of the Imo politician. He said President Buhari gave the instruction.
