The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, has summoned the Adamawa State Commandant of the Corp, Muhammad Bello given the controversy surrounding the just concluded Adamawa State governorship rerun election where the Corps was alleged of complicity along with other security agencies.
The Commandant General of the Corps, Dr Ahmed Audi in a statement on Wednesday directed the State Commandant to immediately hand over affairs of the Command to his immediate subordinate to allow him time to provide the management of the Corps with explanation on the role he played in the exercise.
Dr. Audi emphasised that NSCDC is a non-partisan, non-political organisation that will not tolerate the involvement of personnel or any of its formation in political controversies as widely alleged.
“I have summoned the State Commandant to National Headquarters to face the management team and explain himself in clear terms”.
”We are renown for our integrity, neutrality and non-partisanship in election matters, that is why we will not take the case of Adamawa lightly”.
”I have ordered him to hand over the Command to his immediate deputy because his role in the rerun election is currently being investigated and if he is found culpable, then he will have himself to blame,” CG said.
The CG stated that the situation would be accorded the much-deserved action, and anyone found to be involved in any form of compromise during the governorship rerun election in the state will be dealt with to serve as a deterrent to others.
