Just In: Civil defence sacks officer for looting COVID-19 palliatives

The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has sacked Illiya Ibrahim, corps assistant, who was seen partaking in the looting of a warehouse in the federal capital territory (FCT).

A viral video had shown Ibrahim with bags of rice after hoodlums had raided the Gwagwalada warehouse looting bags of grains, including rice and cartons of noodles and spaghetti.

On Monday, a mob attacked a warehouse at Gwagwalada area council of Abuja, carting away food items.

In a statement on Tuesday, Ekunola Gbenga, NSCDC spokesman, said Abdullahi Gana Muhammadu, commandant-general, approved the recommendation of a disciplinary committee for the dismissal of the officer.

Gbenga said the 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,” he 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 warehouse is said to be owned by the agricultural and rural development secretariat of the Federal Capital Territory, FCTA, administration.
