  • Sports

The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has promised a hitch-free sports festival set to commence at the Stephen Keshi stadium, Asaba, in Delta state.

Emeka Peters, the NSCDC spokesman, disclosed this in a press statement on Friday in Asaba.

According to the statement, NSCDC state commandant Akinsanya Iskilu gave the assurance when he paid an unscheduled visit to the Stephen Keshi International Stadium. He was there to ascertain the level of preparedness in terms of security amongst others before, during and after the event.

Mr Iskilu said that plain clothed officers have been strategically deployed within and outside the perimeter of the venue to gather first hand security and Intelligent information. This would lead to the arrest of would-be trouble makers who attempt to break the law and order before, during and after the sports  festival.

He urged road users to obey all traffic rules, road signs and obey all instructions from security officials and make good use of alternative routes provided for the free flow of traffic.

The commandant maintained that there won’t be any issues with traffic if road users are obedient, patient and are ready to comply with traffic rules, road signs and instructions.

He said other security agencies are on standby, working tirelessly in synergy to ensure a hitch-free, traffic-free, and successful event.

He advised members of the public to cooperate with the security agencies and assured residents of the State tight security before, during and after the event.
