NSCDC Officer Caught Looting Food Items, Sacked | SEE STATE
Illiya Ibrahim, a Corps Assistant, who was caught partaking in the looting of a warehouse in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja, has been sacked by the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).
AFNews recalls that some Nigerians along with the NSCDC officer invaded a warehouse at Gwagwalada area council of Abuja on Monday, carting away food items from the warehouse said to be owned by the Agricultural and Rural Development Secretariat (ARDS) of the FCT Administration (FCTA).
In a video which has since gone viral on the internet, the NSCDC officer was seen helping himself with three bags of rice.
The NSCDC disclosed Ibrahim’s dismissal in a statement issued on Tuesday, October 27, by its spokesman, Ekunola Gbenga, saying that the Commandant-General, Abdullahi Gana Muhammadu, approved the recommendation of a disciplinary committee to dismiss the officer.
According to the corps spokesman, NSCDC officer was charged under the public service rule which is related to “unbecoming conduct of officers”.
“This disciplinary measure was taken after a series of investigations and deliberations by the junior disciplinary committee and recommendations were made to the management,” the statement said.
“The CG appreciates officers and men of the corps including members of the public for providing useful information that has continued to assist the corps in identifying unfit individuals within the ranks for appropriate action.
“He tasked the personnel to remain committed, resolute and firm in the discharge of their duties,” the statement added.
