Hoodlums took away bags of grains, including rice and cartons of noodles and spaghetti from the facility and Ibrahim in a video that went viral was seen on video with his uniform taking a carton and three bags of rice.
Reacting to this development on Tuesday, NSCDC spokesman, Ekunola Gbenga, stated that the commandant-general, Abdullahi Gana Muhammadu, has approved the recommendation of a disciplinary committee for the dismissal of the officer.
According to Gbenga, the officer was charged under the public service rule which is connected to “unbecoming conduct of officers”.
