Nigeria Immigration Service, NIS, have suspended the redeployment of five female officers who participated in the viral #BopDaddyChallenge by singer, Falz.
We reported earlier this month that 5 female immigration officers identified as Priscilla Irabor, Catherine J. Bakura, Blessing Alfred Udida, Binti I. Attabor, and Ockiya Eneni, were transferred to different states as punishment for participating in the “Bop Daddy” challenge in their uniforms.
Following the move, many Nigerians took to social media to slam the agency.
Meanwhile, in recent update, the NIS has released a statement announcing that the Comptroller General of the agency, Muhammad Babandede, has decided to suspend the deployment after his attention was drawn to the matter.
The statement reads;
“The attention of the Comptroller General, Muhammad Babandede, MFR, has been drawn to some trending matters on some social media platforms regarding the deployment of some of our personnel to some formations across the country.
“It is important to note that staff deployment remains a vital practice of regimented organisation such as ours and should be seen as such. As an agency, we maintain zero tolerance to any matters bordering on offences against discipline among members of our workforce irrespective of gender.
“We have high premium for staff development and indeed encourage personal efforts but that must be within the confines of our rules and regulations.
“The matter involving the personnel in question is still being investigated and therefore, the Comptroller General has directed that the earlier posting order be put on hold pending the conclusion of the investigation.”
Nigerian singer, Falz also wrote to the Immigration service over the suspension of the ladies appealing for a reconsideration of their redeployment.
