Cross River State Governor, Ben Ayade

Cross River State’s Homeland Security Service is expected to recruit more than 3,000 youth, the government said.

The state government has in collaboration with the Nigeria Police Force, NPF, commenced the recruitment process.

In a statement issued on Monday in Calabar by the Senior Special Assistant to Governor Ben Ayade on Media, Christian Ita, an applicant must be at least 6ft tall and must be a holder of a university degree or a Higher National Diploma, HND.

Governor Ayade recently signed into law, a bill passed by the State House of Assembly, to establish Cross River State Homeland Security.

The key function of the Cross River State Homeland Security is information gathering, to enable a more effective policing of the state by the Nigerian Police Force.

The organisation shall be a non-arm bearing force.

The state government has purchased hundreds of Kia Sedan cars fitted with state-of-the art communication gadgets in preparation for the official inauguration of the service.
