The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has cleared the Lagos State Commandant of the Corps, Mr Obafaiye Shem, of any ‘wrongdoing’ over his inability to name the organisation’s website during a live interview on Channels Television recently.

The Commandant-General of the Corps, Dr. Ade Abolurin, made this known wednesday in Abuja, at the annual national cooperative corps, saying that Shem did not commit any crime in the blunder, contrary to the rumours making the rounds that he has been suspended.

Abolurin, who did not confirm whether the commandant was on suspension or not, said if Shem was being interviewed and in the process lost his composure, it should not call for a sanction.

When approached by journalists to know his position on the matter, the NSCDC boss said: “It is an internal measure, we will keep you posted. We are still on course because he has not committed any offence. If a person is being interviewed and in the process he could not comport himself that does not result to a crime, it is a question of maturity,” he stated. The popular slogan, ‘My oga at the top’ joke recently emanated from the Channels interview with Shem had since gone viral in all the social networking sites.

Speaking further, Abolurin gave an insight on what the corps was doing to engage its officers in more training and retraining exercise, especially for internal security operations.

“You know I am an advocate of building skills, encouraging training human development and capacity building. We are trying at all level to ensure that our men are well trained, well articulated because training is suppose to be continuous,” he added.
