Female personnel of the Nigeria Immigration Service who were written up for misconduct after appearing in a viral video have been reposted from their current places of assignment in Abuja, Lagos and Enugu and given “graveyard” assignments as far afield as Borno, Kano and Yobe.
It will be recalled that following their appearance in the viral #DontRushChallenge video, Priscilla Irabor, Catherine J. Bakura, Blessing Alfred Udida, Binti I. Attabor and Ockiya Eneni were the subject of a disciplinary memo dated April 15, 2020.
So, some officers in the Nigerian Immigration service did the Bop daddy/don’t rush challenge, and because they are women, the Comptroller General is now trying to penalize them for it. “Indecent flaunting of bodies” (Thread)
The memo, which found its way into the public space sparked vocal condemnation and protests from civil society organisations, human rights lawyers and the general public.
These hopes appear to have been dashed now, as an official NIS memo leaked exclusively to NewsWireNGR shows that the five officers have been handed punitive and discriminatory postings. The memo confirms that Priscilla IRabor has been transferred from the Lagos State Command to the Nigeria Immigration Training School, Kano (ITSK), while Binti Attabor has been reposted from the service headquarters in Abuja to the Yobe State Command.
Catherine Bakura has been moved from the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja to the Nigeria Immigration Training School Ahoada, Rivers State, while Blessing Alfred Udida has been moved from the FCT Command to the Akwa Ibom State Command. Finally Ockiya Eneni has been transferred from the CERPAC (Combined Expatriate Residence Permit and Aliens Card) Production facility to the Borno State Command.
The memo also outlines a secondary punitive measure, which is that the relocation will be done at the personal expense of the officers involved, and they have been given just 7 days to report at their new places of assignment
