The Federal Government has dismissed three personnel of the Nigerian Correctional Service (NCoS), including a Controller of Corrections, for various misconducts such as gross negligence of duty, absence without leave, trafficking in illicit items, general inefficiency and falsification of results among others.
A statement by the spokesperson of the NCoS, Abubakar Umar, on Thursday, said the step was taken to maintain a high standard of discipline and professionalism in the Service.
The name of the dismissed controller was however not disclosed.
Daily Trust gathered that in a letter issued by the Civil Defence, Correctional, Fire, and Immigration Services Board (CDCFIB), a total of 20 personnel were discharged and acquitted of the various offences they were accused of while one officer who was previously suspended was reinstated after the review exercise.
Also, three personnel were compulsorily retired, six personnel had their ranks reduced, and 13 personnel attracted either verbal or plain warnings.
“These sanctions are in line with the zero tolerance on staff misconducts, a cardinal mantra of the Controller General of Corrections, Haliru Nababa FICMC, MFR, mni, and targeted towards ridding the Service of unscrupulous elements and misfits, so as to improve professionalism as well as to entrench discipline, ethics and excellence in its officers and men,” Umar stated.
He said the Service had the mandate of keeping custody of the legally interned in a safe and humane condition as well as reforming, rehabilitating and reintegrating them back into society as responsible citizens, adding that to meet these mandates, the Service had to cleanse personnel of bad eggs as well as unprofessionalism that may slow down the achievement its mandates.
