He said the security committee is a grassroot-level security team of local leaders and citizens who work with NSCDC to prevent crime by giving proactive intelligence in their communities.

According to him, NSCDC couldn’t be everywhere all the time, therefore, the need for collaborative efforts to get indigenous people involved in securing Osun.

Sarafadeen explained further that members of the committee are saddled with the responsibility of providing proactive intelligence. He told the locals, “bring any suspicious activity in your neighborhood to the attention of the Corps.”
