Vigilante Group Lauds Reps For Passage Of VGN Bill

The Commander General of Vigilante Group of Nigeria (VGN), Dr. Usman Mohammed Jahun, has described the passage of the VGN Bill by the House of Representatives as a welcome development in Nigeria’s quest to overcome its internal security challenges.

He said although the Bill had earlier been passed by the 8th National Assembly but was not signed into law due to some hitches.

He, therefore, commended members of the House of Representatives for approving the Bill for the establishment of Vigilante Group of Nigeria to enhance security in the country.

The VGN Commander stated that the Bill when signed into law would complement the efforts of President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration in tackling boko haram, banditry, kidnapping and other forms of insecurity bedevilling the country.

According to him, officers and men of VGN have over the years been trained on intelligence gathering, security strategies, information and communication technology (ICT) on effective security operations, among others, aimed at strengthening the nation’s security apparatus most especially at the grassroots.

The Commander General of VGN stated that the organisation was also collaborating with some Universities and other institutions of higher learning with the purpose of improving the education level of its members towards enhancing their activities.
