The Comptroller General (CG) of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), Mrs Kemi Nandap, has ordered an investigation into an alleged assault of a journalist, Seun Falomo, and two personnel of the Oyo State Road Traffic Management Agency (OYSRTMA) by immigration officers.

Mrs Nandap gave the order in a statement by the service’ spokesman, Mr Kenneth Udo, on Wednesday, saying the service would not hesitate to sanction any of its officers and men who flaunted the law.

It was gathered that a news report circulated alleging that some immigration officers assaulted two personnel of OYSRTMA and one Seun Falomo, a journalist with Galaxy TV.

The statement reads in part: “I have ordered a thorough investigation into the case and we have swung into action to uncover the facts behind the fracas.”
