Fire Service threatens to withdraw rescue services due to attacks on officers. Because of the attacks on personnel, the fire department has threatened to stop providing rescue services.

Dr Ibrahim Liman, the Comptroller-General of the Nigerian Federal Fire Service, has stated that service will be withdrawn from any state if his personnel or equipment are assaulted while performing their duty.

On Tuesday, Liman informed Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State during a courtesy visit to his office.

The CG, who claimed he was in Ondo for a week-long retreat for fire service management officials, said the training will help his troops offer better service.

President Muhammadu Buhari’s government, according to Liman, has expanded the service for improved service delivery.

He also mentioned that the service’s employee strength has increased from around 1,000 before 2015 to over 6,000, thanks to the acquisition of 141 vehicles, with another 59 trucks set to arrive in the nation soon.

According to him, the response of his men to fire disasters had improved with the presence of the service in 13 zones and all the states of the federation.

Governor Akeredolu said the visit was crucial as the season shifts from rainy to dry, bringing with it the threat of fire.
