The NSCDC Commandant in the state, Mr Jamilu Indabawa disclosed this when he received the new Katsina Area Controller of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), Mr Muhammad Umar, on a courtesy call.

According to him, the deployment of the personnel was part of the existing synergy between the security agencies in the state to ensure the security and safety of the people.
