He said the NSCDC had been saddled with a specialised security mandate of protecting critical infrastructure like oil pipelines, oil fields, water ways, and power lines, and noted that his command would do everything possible to protect the facilities across the country.

Mohammadu stated this when he paid a courtesy visit to the NURTW National President, Mr. Najeem Yasin in Abuja.

A statement by the NURTW Director of Information Services, Kefas Dogonyaro stated on Saturday explained that the NSCDC commander also pledged to deploy personnel to protect over 250 cattle ranches which would soon be established across the country.

He was also quoted to have requested for additional 1,000 personnel in order to meet up with the task ahead.

Yasin commended the NSCDC for maintaining peace and ensuring security of lives and property.

He assured the NSCDC boss that the NURTW would continue to partner with his agency at all times.
