The Imo Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, has denied responsibility for the death of a 15-month-old baby via a stray bullet.
The command’s Public Relations Officer, Mr. Lowell Chimeziri, a corps Chief Superintendent, made the denial in Owerri when he addressed newsmen on behalf of the Commandant, Mr. Matthew Ovye.
Chimeziri describes as “unfortunate” reports alleging that the NSCDC was culpable in the child’s death, an act which, he says was unknown to the modes of operation of the corps.
He urges the public to ignore the allegation and remained calm while the command carried out holistic investigations in cooperation with other security agencies to unravel the culprits and make them face the law.
