The Commandant General of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Dr Ade Abolurin, has made it clear that the Lagos State Corps Commandant, Mr Obafaiye Shem, has not committed any punishable offence on the account of the recent television interview he granted. The NSCDC boss also debunked rumours that Mr Obafaiye had been suspended.
Abolurin made this known on Wednesday, in Abuja, at the annual national cooperative society meeting of the corps. He said if the Lagos State commandant was interviewed, and in the process lost his composure, that “did not call for sanction.”
According to Abolurin, “it is an internal measure; we will keep you posted; we are still on course because he has not committed any offence. If a person is being interviewed, and in the process the person could not compose himself, that does not result to a crime; it is a question of maturity,” he stated.
He however expressed determination to engage officers in more training and re-training: “You know I am an advocate of building skills, encouraging trainings, human development and capacity building. We are trying at all levels to ensure that our men are well trained and well articulated because training is supposed to be continuous,” he added.
