NAPTIP sacks 6 for ‘demanding’ sex

The National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP), says it has sacked six of its officers for corruption and official misconduct.
NAPTIP’s head of press and public relations unit, Stella Nezan, disclosed this in a statement in Abuja yesterday.
Nezan explained that the offences committed by the officers included arranging professional sureties for suspects for a fee and providing information about the operations of NAPTIP to outsiders for a fee.
She said the affected officers endangered the lives of their colleagues by so doing.
The spokesperson said some of the sacked officers were involved in theacceptance of bribes and aiding the escape of suspects.
According to her, others made sexual advances to victims of trafficking as a condition for rendering service to them.
She added that one of those sacked was absent from duty without official leave from July 2017 to May 2018, and was also involved in financial misconduct.
The spokesperson disclosed further that one officer was given compulsory retirement for various offences that were inimical to the operations of NAPTIP.
Nezan noted that the offences were categorised under corruption, divided loyalty, sabotage and gross indiscipline, contrary to the civil service regulations.
“This development followed the recommendation of the management of the agency who found them culpable for various offences.
“This is in line with the disciplinary actions and in-house cleaning embarked upon by the present management to enthrone discipline, dedication, loyalty as well as enhance the operations of the agency,” she stated.
