Journalists in Ondo to get trained on Self-Defence Tactics–NSCDC
Nigeria Security And Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has concluded plans to train journalists in Ondo State on self-security.
The state Commandant of NSCDC, Hammed Abodunrin, stated this during his courtesy visit to the Nigeria Union of Journalists Correspondents’ chapel on Friday.
In his resolve to reducing crime rate in the state, he noted that it’s pertinent for every citizen, particularly journalists, to be security-conscious due to the twist of situations in the country.
According to Abodunrin, “Everybody must be security-conscious and that’s why there is need for us to upscale the security skill of everybody particularly the media who will be reporting so many things including the criminalities of people, political campaigns among others.
“So we want to see how we can be preventing it from happening.
“The essence of this training for journalists is for them to know what are the things causing insecurity. What are the possible things to do to save ourselves; what are the little skills we can display if we have attack, among others security tips for our benefits.
“Also we are going to look at some self-defence tactics. These are the things we all need as journalists in order to reduce the issue of insecurity in our society.”
The commandant, therefore, advised that after the training, the beneficiaries should endeavour to share their training experiences with their families and associates with a view to reducing rate of crimes in the society.
