Inspector Ekunola Gbenga, the Media Assistant to Abdullahi Gana, the Commandant General of NSCDC, disclosed this in a statement issued yesterday.
According to the statement which read in part, ‘The Commandant General, Abdullahi Gana, has approved the recommendation of the Junior Staff Disciplinary Committee for the dismissal of Illiya Ibrahim of the Gwagwalada Division for joining hoodlums in looting Covid-19 palliatives discovered in a warehouse in Gwagwalada, Abuja.’
The recommendation by NSCDC, was issued after the officer was charged under the public service rule which guides against the unlawful conduct of officers.
Inspector Ekunola further stressed that, ‘This disciplinary measure was taken after a series of investigations and deliberations by the junior disciplinary committee and recommendations were made to the management.’
