The NSCDC Commandant-General, Ahmed Audi, disclosed this at the passing out parade of personnel of the squad at the corps training College in Katsina on Friday.

He said: “Female Squad is a child of necessity borne out of the need to effectively curtail the recent upsurge of insecurity occasioned by armed banditry, kidnapping, insurgency and the need to effectively implement the government’s proposed Safe School Initiative.

“Recent upsurge and frequency of attacks by bandits who engage in kidnapping of students for ransom has made it imperative to focus attention on intensifying security in the school environment.
