Commandant-general of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Ahmad Audi has ordered the reinstatement of officers attached to Shina Peller, a member of the house of representatives.
LIB reported that the NSCDC withdrew the personnel attached to the lawmaker representing lseyin/ltesiwaju/ Kajola/lwajowa Federal Constituency in Oyo State on Wednesday February 2, just after he introduced a bill proposing to scrap the Corps and merge it with the Nigeria Police Force.
Audi who reversed the withdrawal of the security aides in a statement issued Wednesday evening, said the letter from the Oyo commandant was sent “without clearance”. He also said the officer who ordered the withdrawal acted out of line.
The statement read;
“The leadership of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps has dismissed as unauthorised and without recourse to the Corps constituted authority, a letter signed and sent to a Member of the House of Representatives, Hon Shina Peller, informing him of the withdrawal of officials of the NSCDC assigned to him.
“Not only did the officer in question lack the power to do such, he was also found to have acted on his whims without clearance.
“The Commandant General, Dr. Ahmed Abubakar Audi, mni, has therefore directed a reinstatement of the withdrawn officers with complement of necessary courtesies to the Honourable Member.”
