The Commandant General (CG) of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Ahmed Abubakar Audi, has announced the approval by the Civil Defence, Corrections, Fire and Immigration Board (CDCFIB), to discipline a total of 31 officers and men of Corps involved in various degrees of offences.

The CG confirmed this during a management meeting at the NSCDC National Headquarters, where he vowed and reiterated his determination not to allow errant officers to portray the corps in a bad light under his leadership.

According to him: “The actions of the erring personnel made it imperative to invoke internal disciplinary mechanism by setting up disciplinary committees which carried out an investigation and orderly room trial for various offences and spelt out the recommendation of different sanctions to the Board for Approval. Consequently, 31 officers and men involved in different acts deemed unbecoming of personnel of the Corps are to face different sanctions. Among them, 15 are dismissed from service, nine are to face compulsory retirement, seven were suspended, and the remaining two are to face interdiction and demotion respectively.”

The further breakdown indicates that among the numbers dismissed includes one (1) ASC1, two (2) CCA, three (3) AIC, three (3) CA111, two ( 2) CA11, one (1) CA1, one (1) IC and one (1) AIC face dismissal and prosecution.

The suspended officers include two (2) Deputy Commandants of the Corps, three (3) Assistant Commandants of the Corps, one (1) Assistant Superintendent of Corps ASCII and one (1) CAII. The board also approved the interdiction of an Inspector of the Corps (IC) and the demotion of one (1) other Inspector of the Corps (IC).

The 31 affected personnel were sanctioned for offences ranging from job racketeering, conspiracy, extortion, forgery, absence without leave (AWOL), dishonesty, and economic sabotage, among others.

Following the disgraceful conduct of the concerned officers, the Commandant General has called on all personnel to uphold the Corps’ Standard Operating Procedure (SOP), Code of Ethics, discipline and adherence to Public Service Rules.

He warned that the sanctions meted out to erring personnel should serve as a deterrent to others as unethical conduct will not be condoned in the Corps. The CG however promised to reward officers and men who excel in their various assignments as a motivation for good conduct and dedication to service.
