Kogi State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps, NSCDC, is set to collaborate with the Amagalmated Unions of Food Stuff and Cattle Dealers of Nigeria towards checkmating cattle rustling and food insecurity.

The state commandant of the corps, Oyinloye John Kayode stated this when the national leadership of the union visited him at the command's headquarters in Lokoja.

Commandant Oyinloye said the Agro Rangers Department of NSCDC will kick-start the pilot scheme in Kogi State with the union to achieve set goals.

According to him, the command in conjunction with the union's leadership will tackle challenges by creating a pilot security post at Karara near the naval base in the state to check waybills as well as receipts of payment of trucks transporting livestock and farm produce in and out of Kogi State.

The development, he stressed, would enable the corps to check illegal movement of livestock and produce, expired or poisonous produce and overloading of trucks to avoid accidents.

In his remark, the national organising secretary of the Amalgamated Unions of Food Stuff and Cattle Dealers of Nigeria, Ayuba Umar Rano said the partnership with the corps became imperative in view of the need to provide food security as well as safeguard their businesses.

The development, he avowed, would bring sanity to the transportation of livestock and produce across the country and check illegal movement and activities of some of its members, with appropriate sanctions to be meted to offenders.

Also speaking, the commander of agro rangers in the state, CSC Bayode Emmanuel said the pilot scheme, among other things, would combat threats to food security, [guarantee] safety of duly registered cattle and farm produce and reduce drastically the rate of accident involving trucks transporting livestock and farm produce in the country.
