The Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has ordered the immediate reinstatement of officers attached to Shina Peller, a member of the House of Representatives.

Officers attached to the lawmaker were withdrawn after he sponsored a bill at the National Assembly seeking to scrap the paramilitary agency.

The Agency in a statement on Wednesday said the letter signed and sent to the lawmaker informing him of the withdrawal of officials of the NSCDC assigned to him is unauthorized and without recourse to the Corps constituted authority.

“Not only did the officer in question lacked the power to do such, he was also found to have acted on his whims without clearance. The Commandant General, Dr. Ahmed Abubakar Audi, mni, has therefore directed a reinstatement of the withdrawn officers with a compliment of necessary courtesies to the Honourable Member”, the statement read.
