In a bold move to safeguard Nigeria's power infrastructure, Minister of Interior Dr. Olubunmi Tunji Ojo has proposed the creation of specialized units dubbed "Power Rangers" to protect against vandalism and terrorism.

Speaking at the passing out parade of the second batch of 350 Mining Marshals at the NSCDC Complex in Sauka, Abuja, Dr. Tunji Ojo highlighted the urgent need to address the continuous attacks on power infrastructure nationwide. He stressed that no nation can achieve development without robust investment and protection in the power sector.

“I will speak with my brother, the Minister of Power. The rate of vandalism, of economic terrorism going on with our transmission lines, has to be looked into. It is your job to make sure that no critical asset of the government is destroyed, and we are ready, and I believe NSCDC is up to the task,” he asserted.

Dr. Tunji Ojo urged the Commandant General of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) to establish a dedicated squad to tackle power vandals. “The next time I come here, I want to see my Power Rangers—people who will protect our distribution lines, our Gencos, and every aspect of the power sector.”

He emphasized that it is unacceptable for a country like Nigeria to invest billions of dollars in power infrastructure only to have it vandalized. “No country grows or develops without a stable power sector, so NSCDC, it is time for you to play your part,” he stated.

To ensure the effective accomplishment of this mandate, Dr. Tunji Ojo proposed the sectorisation of responsibilities within the NSCDC, focusing on protecting critical power assets across the country.
