The Nigerian Correctional Service (NCoS) has on Monday suspended Deputy Comptroller of Corrections, Abubakar Mohammed Sani, after his arraignment by Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, before Justice Hadiza Sabi’u Shagari of the Federal High Court Katsina.

The suspended officer, according to statement by the Public Relation officer of corrections, Mr. A. C Njoku, was arraigned by the EFCC on a six-count charge of conspiracy and obtaining by false pretence.

It stated that, “The Service on the approval of Civil Defence, Corrections, Fire and Immigration Services Board (CDCFIB) had on the 26th October, 2020 suspended the above-mentioned officer based on the charge of grouse misconduct reported against him.

“The Controller General of Corrections Ja’afaru Ahmed, said the Service will not take lightly any case of misconduct against any personnel of the service.

“It can be recalled that, recently, the CDCFIB approved the dismissal of seven senior officers from the Service based on the recommendation of the Senior Officers Disciplinary Committee.

“The CGC called on members of the Public with similar or any case against members of staff to forward such to the office for appropriate disciplinary actions.

He assures the Public of the safe and humane custody of all those legally committed,” it added.
