The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) says it has deployed a special intelligence team to crack down on illegal movement and hoarding of food commodities in Katsina state.

Jamilu Indabawa, the NSCDC commandant in the state, said this on Monday while receiving Jabiru Tsauri, chief of staff to the state governor and chairman of the committee set up to monitor prices and movement of grains in Katsina.

On February 21, Dikko Radda, governor of Katsina, inaugurated a 27-member joint task force to monitor prices and illegal movement of food commodities in the state.

Indabawa noted that the commission will be working on credible intelligence from different special teams.


“Our personnel at local government areas and border areas have already swung into action,” Indabawa said.

“I assure you of all necessary support, cooperation and timely intelligence that will help to uncover these illegal dealings.”

The NSCDC commandant also commended the state government for the initiative.


On his part, Tsauri commended the NSCDC for their efforts across the state, while warning that anyone found in illegal dealings with food commodities, unlawful act of price hike and hoarding, would face the full wrath of the law.

He called for support, cooperation and collaboration with the NSCDC Katsina command.
