Abuja, Jan. 10, 2023, – The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) on Tuesday said it had dismissed four officers and sanctioned 32 others for various offences. 

It said the measures were 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 Spokesman for the Service, said in a statement in Abuja that 14 personnel were demoted after appearing before the Orderly Room Trial Committee of the Service. 

“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,” Akuneme said. (GBN)
