The commandant of the  NSCDC who had earlier officially presented the female special squad to Secretary to the State Government, Mrs Oladunni Odu, in Akure,  stated that the special female squad  was set up to provide security to the schools.

He also sought for the training of the school children on security to reduce cases of kidnapping of pupils  in schools.

The NSCDC boss said, “We should see it beyond policing them 24 hours because there is the need to teach children to be conscious of their environment. On our part, we are going to give the children tips so that they will know how to also handle their own security.
