The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has 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. 

The Public Relations Officer ( PRO) of the Service, Tony Akuneme, said in a statement that 14 personnel were demoted after appearing before the Orderly Room Trial Committee of the Service. 

Akuneme said four other personnel were discharged and acquitted, while two were redeployed.

He added that 11 personnel were issued warning letters and one was compulsorily retired. 

According to him, 11 personnel are still awaiting trial before the  Committee.

“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,” the PRO said.
