There is no doubt that the excesses and overzealousness of private security guards in areas that renders essential services has blown out of proportion.
From the episode of CCT chairman, Justice Danladi to others. The recent one is how an halogen security company private guard attached to Eterna filling station wuse 2 refused to heed to correction of former personal assistant to interior Minister on media, Salihu Dantata Mahmud on the 13 of November 2021 at wuse 2 at about 9:00 pm when the former PA went to refill.
By fire safety standard, no petrol station is suppose to use entrance gate for exit, which Salihu cautioned but got assaulted and insulted by the two security guards. Intervention of some police officers saved the situation. There is the need for the NSCDC charged with the responsibility of regulating the security companies to organise periodical training for them inorder to live up to their limitations as many people are being manhandled by private guards always.
