The woman, identified as Mama Delta, was allegedly shot by a NSCDC officer last Wednesday while she was reportedly accompanying the family and friends of a bricklayer, Yakubu Lasisi, who died in an accident involving another NSCDC officer, to the cemetery for burial.
But the state police command had alleged that the NSCDC was delaying its investigation into the killing as the corps had allegedly not responded to the request sent to the command of the NSCDC to identify and fish out the suspect.
He said, “ We received a letter from the Nigeria police requesting the corps to produce the killer of the on Wednesday 29th of August 2018 during the protest and the corps had responded to the letter accordingly.
“The command wishes to say clearly that no officer of the corps was involved in the alleged shooting of the woman. The NSCDC is a responsible organisation which is committed to the protection of
lives and properties of Nigerians and foreigners residing in the country as enshrined in the NSCDC Acts of 2003 and 2007 as amended.
“The corps will not tolerate any act of misconduct among its personnel nor shield any of its personnel who has committed any crime or involve in any act of indiscipline.”
Samuel also explained that the corps had commenced its own investigation into the matter, saying the corps would be neutral in the “on-going investigation into the killing of the woman.” SHARE THIS STORY USING ANY OF THE BUTTON BELOW ⬇ PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW ⬇⬇⬇
