The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has dismissed from service Corps Assistant Illiya Ibrahim of the Gwagwalada Division, Abuja over the looting of COVID-19 palliatives discovered in a warehouse in Gwagwalada, Abuja.

The Media Assistant to the Commandant General of NSCDC, Gbenga Ekunola, disclosed this in a statement made available to journalists in Abuja on Tuesday evening.

“The Commandant General Abdullahi Gana Muhammadu has approved the recommendation of the Junior Staff Disciplinary Committee for the dismissal of Illiya Ibrahim of the Gwagwalada Division for joining hoodlums in looting Covid-19 palliatives discovered in a warehouse in Gwagwalada, Abuja.
