There was a report that NSCDC withdrew the personnel attached to the lawmaker representing lseyin/ltesiwaju/ Kajola/lwajowa Federal Constituency in Oyo State on Wednesday.
The withdrawal of the personnel followed the introduction of a bill by Peller proposing to scrap the Corps and merge it with the Nigeria Police Force.
But NSCDC Commandant General, Dr. Ahmed Abubakar Audi, reversed the withdrawal of the security aides in a statement issued Wednesday evening.
The statement was titled, ‘CG frowns at withdrawal of officials assigned to Member of the House of Representatives, orders reinstatement’
The statement reads “The leadership of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps has dismissed as unauthorized and without recourse to the Corps constituted authority, a letter signed and sent to a Member of the House of Representatives, Hon Shina Peller, informing him of the withdrawal of officials of the NSCDC assigned to him.
“Not only did the officer in question lack the power to do such, he was also found to have acted on his whims without clearance.
“The Commandant General, Dr. Ahmed Abubakar Audi, has therefore directed a reinstatement of the withdrawn officers with a compliment of necessary courtesies to the Honorable Member.”
