NSCDC appoints Abodurin as commander of Safe Schools Preparedness Center


The Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC) has appointed Commander Ahmed Abodurin as the new Director of the National Security Schools Response Coordination Center (NSSRCC).

The agency's commander, Dr. Ahmed Audi, has appointed him to replace the reassigned former center commander, Tersu Shaapera.

In a statement by the Corps’ Public Relations Officer (PRO), Mr. Babawale Afolabi, Dr. Abodunrin “joined the NCDC as a volunteer in 1994 and was a trained and accomplished journalist until his promotion.

“He has held various senior positions in the NSCDC and is also a former state commander of Ogun and Ondo states.”

He completed his first degree from the University of Lagos, completed his postgraduate and PhD degrees from the University of Ibadan, and is a Fellow of the Institute of Criminology and Strategic Studies (FICSS) and a Fellow of the prestigious National Defense University.

The NSSRCC is located at the NSCDC National Headquarters in Abuja and has so far established State Coordination Centers across the state. It is tasked with implementing the Safe Schools Project.

The center focuses on intelligence and surveillance, and provides personnel to schools and host communities in a variety of locations, particularly those considered to be prone to school kidnappings and attacks.
