Kaduna, Jan 14, 2023 – The Kaduna Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) on Saturday handed over the remaining four corpses of its personnel killed by bandits to their families for burial.

Recall that seven personnel and five others were on Monday killed by bandits in an ambush in Kuriga village in Birnin Gawri Local Government Area of the state.

Earlier, the NSCDC had handed over the body of late Insp. Fidelis Yusuf for final internment on Thursday, while ASC1 Shamsudeen Labaran was buried on January 10 at Anguwan Dosa cemetery, according to Islamic rites.

ASC ll Augustine Simon’s remains were conveyed to Benue for burial on Friday.

The four, whose remains were handed over to their families for burial, included ASC II Peter Ayuba, CA II Yashim ELisha, Inspector Michael Musa and Sgt. Peter Kurah.

The NSCDC Commandant General, Audi Abubakar, while paying his last respect to the personnel, said that the incident had brought sadness to the entire country.

Abubakar, represented by NSCDC Commandant Kaduna, Idris Adah, said that President Muhammadu Buhari and the entire NSCDC staff and Nigerians were saddened by the loss.

“We don’t have the right to query God, it has happened and death is of course inevitable; this is their own day when ours comes, we shall all go,” he said.

He called on the personnel of NSCDC to see the death of their colleagues as a reminder that one day they would also be laid to their graves.

Abubakar said that compensation would be paid to the families of the deceased, but said that no amount of compensation could compensate for the lives of the deceased personnel.

“Notwithstanding, appropriate attention will be given to their families.

“We just have to take hearts, we don’t have control over such kinds of situation, everybody should endeavour to be praying for the rest of their souls,” he said. (GBN)
