NSCDC Arrests Suspects Allegedly Supplying Petrol Products To Boko Haram

The suspects.


The Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corp (NSCDC) has arrested some suspects for allegedly supplying petroleum products and hard drugs to Boko Haram terrorists.

NSCDC nabbed members of the gang said to be operating between the borders of Nigeria and the neighbouring Cameroon Republic in Adamawa State.

Corp Commander, Nurudeen Abdullahi disclosed this at a press briefing in his office in Yola, the Adamawa state capital.

“We have gone to Yobe South, Mayha, Michika and Fufure to block all these routes where the diversion is taking place. The Command has already constituted a formidable patrol team in order to track down their activities and bring the perpetrators to book.

“About the vehicle carrying hard drugs, we got the person supplying hard drugs, more especially tramadol to Adamawa State. On seeing the NSCDC patrol team blocking his way, he took to his heels”, he stated.

While reiterating the commitment of his command to fight criminal elements in the state, Adbullahi warned criminals to desist from their activities.

He noted that cattle rustlers, drug peddlers, armed robbers wouldn’t be spared as the Federal Government is committed to the protection of lives and properties of Nigerians.

“The people that are involved in this cattle rustling, armed robbery, drug abuse, drug dealing should stop as the government is very serious about this issue.

“Anybody that is caught is going to face the law. All the security agencies, not only Civil Defence are now armed, they are ready and are going to stop this”, he said.

The Corp Commander also appealed to the public to cooperate with security agencies by availing them with timely and useful information that will help in arresting criminals.

Organisers frown at appearance of rogue condoms in Olympic Village

Brand endorsement can be said to be one of the major issues the Olympic organisers have taken seriously as the recent appearance of a bucket of rogue condoms inside the Olympic Village forced the organisers to begin investigation.

The investigation is to seek how the condoms came about as they were not the ‘official’ condom of the Olympics.

Talking of ‘Official’ condom of the London 2012 Olympics, Durex paid to be the official supplier at the London Games.

The company sent 150,000 free condoms to the Olympic Village as part of the deal which will be shared amongst an average of 10,490 athletes. It is expected that there will be enough condoms for every athlete to have sex 15 times over the Olympics’ three weeks.

But if this supply has already been depleted with five days before the end of the games then it might confirm the news which made rounds that the Olympic Village is a hotbed of hook-ups among athletes.

Condoms has always been provided free of charge at the Olympic Village since the 1992 Barcelona Games. They are distributed in progressively copious amounts to athletes.

Some 100,000 condoms were provided for Beijing’s 2008 Games.

This whole condom gist in the London 2012 Olympics started with a tweet from Olympian Caroline Buchanan, an Australian who is a BMX rider, posted a picture of a bucketful of “Kangaroo condoms” with tagline: “for the gland down under”.
