A total of N21 million was recovered by the Jigawa Command of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC) from indebted residents of the state in the last quarter of the year.

Business Post gathered that the NSCDC Commandant in the state, Mr Garba Muhammad, made this known to News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in the state capital, Dutse, on Friday.

Mr Muhammad said the amount was recovered following complaints received by the command from aggrieved creditors between October and December. He explained that the command has discharged its duties by resolving the disagreements between the debtors and their creditors.

The security expert added that the recovered funds were handed over to their owners after the resolution of the disagreements.

According to him, the corps will continue to ensure that residents of the state live together in peace and harmony, adding that there will be better improvements to their operations next year.

He urged residents of the state to remain law abiding, assuring them that the civil defence corps will continue to support government to maintain law and order.

Jigawa is a state in the northwestern part of the country and is bordered by Kano State and Katsina State border to the west, Bauchi State to the east and Yobe State to the northeast. To the north, Jigawa shares an international border with Zinder Region in The Republic of Niger. The state has a population of about 3.6 million, who are mostly of Hausa/Fulani extraction.

The main occupation of residents of Jigawa State is farming and livestock production.
