President Muhammadu Buhari suspended the Comptroller General of the Nigerian Immigration Services, David Parradang, on Friday, August 21.
It has been revealed that the Comptroller-General of the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS), Mr. David Parradang,was suspended from work yesterday over alleged ....
recruitment of 1,000 immigration officers by the organization in violation of due process.
Parradeng was sent home by the federal government which also directed the most senior Deputy Comptroller-General of Immigration, Mr. Martin Kure Abeshi, to take over in an acting capacity.
The Director of Press, Ministry of Interior, Yusuf Isiaka Alhaji, confirmed the suspension via a terse statement.
However, in spite of widespread belief, the Presidency insists that Parradang was not suspended because an ISIS chief got a Nigerian visa.
It will be recalled that Ahmad al-Assir, a leader of Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, recently managed to get a valid Nigerian visa in Lebanon.
The ISIS leader who is on international list of wanted terrorists obtained the visa on a fake Palestinian passport and was on his way to Nigeria before he was arrested in Lebanon.
