The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) is deploying 20,000 of its special forces to South-East Anambra State for the governorship election scheduled for November 6, 2021.

Those to be deployed include personnel of the NSCDC Arms Squad Unit, Counter-Terrorism Unit, and the Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Explosives Unit.

The Commandant General of NSCDC, Dr Ahmed Audi, disclosed this on Thursday in Abuja while delivering his keynote address at a “3-day Train-The-Trainers Capacity Building and Electoral Workshop,” ahead of the Anambra poll.

He said the special forces would be drafted to key points in the State where they would be saddled with the responsibility of protecting lives and property, sensitive and non-sensitive election materials, INEC officials and all critical assets against vandalism, damage or arsonist attacks.
