The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has approved the dismissal of four officers and sanction of 32 others for various offences.

He said the measures are taken as part of efforts to rid the Service of bad eggs and reinforce the Federal Government’s commitment to the fight against corruption.

Tony Akuneme, the Public Relations Officer ( PRO) of the Service, stated in a statement that 14 personnel were demoted after appearing before the Orderly Room Trial Committee of the Service, while adding that four other personnel were discharged and acquitted, while two were redeployed and 11 personnel were issued warning letters, where one was given compulsory retirement.

According to him, 11 personnel are still awaiting trial before the Committee.

“The Comptroller General of Immigration is assuring the general public that there are no sacred cows in the NIS as all offenders shall be appropriately sanctioned.

“He is also urging members of public to be vigilant and support the Service to deliver more on its mandate,” the PRO said.
