N300,000-for-a-Job Civil Defence Scammers Nabbed! by kehnton(m): 9:59pm On Oct 06, 2012
A major scandal is rocking the headquarters of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps ,NSCDC. Newsdiaryonline.com has learnt that the head of the corps’ anti-corruption unit Mr Akeem Tiamiyu who doubles as an adviser to the Commandant General of the corps ,Dr. Ade Abolurin was last week caught at a hotel in Gwagwalada, a suburb of Abuja . He was “sharing” letters of employment to prospective new employees ,who were expected to pay the sum of N300,000 each to collect their letters.He had 2000 of such letters on this occasion Newsdiaryonline.com learnt.

The incident happened on the 27th of September at about 2.00Pm at Atlas Hotel in Gwagwalada where the head of the anti corruption unit of the corps was busy “trading” with 2000 appointment letters in his possession.Insiders said the arrest of the head of the supposed ant-graft chief has raised eye brows within the corps because the letters were actually signed by the commandant General Abolurin.The question now was the CG’s signature forged? Insiders claimed the signatures were real .But how did it happen?

Akeem who is of the rank of ASC 1 in the corps was said to have in concert with his aides in the racket informed some of those to be recruited to come for their letter with the sum of N300,000 each.But insiders said he ran out of luck this fateful day.

According to sources, as he was sharing out the letters at the hotel in Gwagwalada, under- cover security operatives swooped on him and caught him red- handed.The corps’ head of anti –corruption department was said to have actually started trading with the letters when he was stopped.Sources said three under- cover operatives that stopped him included two from Nigerian prisons service and one operative from the immigration service. They apprehended him and swiftly told him what he was doing was wrong and “gave him marching orders to the headquarters of civil defence corps in Abuja”, after reporting the incident.

Newsdiaryonline.com learnt that as soon as the operatives caught Akeem, they reported the matter an unnamed member of the board which controls customs, immigration and civil defence.A board member subsequently put a call to Abolurin, the commandant general of the corps who was ordered to hand over the apprehended official to ICPC for prosecution.

But the story has taken a new turn ever since the CG was told about the arrest of the head of his anti corruption unit. An insider said Abolurin persuaded the board member to allow him “do his in house investigation”.This is already being interpreted to mean an attempt to cover up the matter.Further questions are being asked because the appointment letters found on the suspects seemed duly signed by the CG.How did he get the letters which seemed duly signed by the CG? That is one of the questions insiders are asking now.

But the head of the anti corruption department was not the only one apprehended over this racket.Newsdiaryonline.com learnt that two other staff of the corps(Names withheld) were helping Akeem at Hotel.Were they just obeying their superior’s order or have they been part of the racket all along?And for how long has tis been happening?One of those caught long with him works at the training department in the headquarters .The second person caught along with him was a staff attached to the Gwagwalad division of the corps.

Attention now seems to have shifted to how the CG has been handling the investigation into the racket.Since a board member called the CG and ,he has been left with no option but to detain the head of the corps’ anti corruption unit.The CG ordered his detention as soon as he was brought to the headquarters.Akeem sources said was detained for three days and his phones were allegedly seized from while the in-house panel set up by the CG has been doing its job.But the closeness of the suspect to the CG has remained a source of sustained interest by insiders who are suspicious of “the panel set up by the CG to investigat his special adviser on fraud”.

Knowldgeable insiders are already saying that even from the steps taking by Abolurin, he has shown signs that he may not deal decisively with Akeem like he did to those who committed similar offences in the past.At least two instances are being recalled where in the past such offenders were dismissed by the corps.The cases of a chap from Nassarawa state and another official from the south east (names withheld ) are being cited where those offender dismissed are being cited.

Said a puzzled insider:The whole world is watching along with presidency and the minister of interior (Abba Morro) how Abolurin will solve this problem”

NIGERIA IS DEAD!!!
So jobs now belong to the highest bidders instead of the Most Qualified?

There is definitely NO HOPE for the common man in this country.

Now those people get employed and all their focus and attention is to take as much BRIBE as possible to make up for the N300,000 they paid.

Even when you want to get a government (and private) contract it is even worse.

Nigeria is Dead!!!

Later, people will start a thread and ask us why we are bitter, and that we should come home, that things are getting better, there are now more jobs and business is moving unlike in the west.

The fraud is not the only problem, but the resignation of people to the fact that its now the norm and will soon be swept under the carpet. If we come home now to speak up, them go say ''who this one dey form for, you no know say na 9ja you dey??''

I have to say that something positive might actually be happening with crime fighting in Nigeria. The police are able to make meaningful arrests and other agencies are following suit. Hope the judicial system will follow too.

Nairalanders, kudos for a job well done. I know that more of these scams will be expose in the near future by reason of our collective commitments. Keep the flags flying as we forge ahead to rid our great country of 'official' corruption.
