The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) said it has dismissed from the service a corps assistant with its Gwagwalada Division, in relation to the looting of COVID-19 palliatives discovered in a warehouse in Gwagwalada, Abuja.

This was disclosed in a statement issued to newsmen by the Media Assistant to the Commandant General of NSCDC, Ekunola Gbenga, on Tuesday.

A viral video of the NSCDC official holding some COVID-19 loot at an undisclosed location had gone viral in the internet since Monday.

“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 statement reads.

According to the NSCDC statement, the recommendation was given after 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,” Mr Ekunola said in the statement.

“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.
