The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has announced the dismissal of Innocent Oshemi, an officer who allegedly shot dead a colleague and a Korean national.

NSCDC Commandant General, Abdullahi Gana, in a press briefing on Wednesday, said Mr Oshemi had been handed over to the police for prosecution.

Oshemi allegedly killed a senior inspector of the corps at the Lagos Deep Offshore Logistics (LADOL), Mamman Wuya, and a Korean, Tea Kun Kara, who was an employee of Samsung Heavy Industries in Lagos.

Mr. Gana, represented by the Assistant Commandant General in charge of Protection of Critical Infrastructure, Jonathan Iyogho, said an internal inquiry had found Oshemi culpable for the alleged murders.

“We visited the police when they informed us of a Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) coverage of the incident.

“A staff committee was set up by the corps to look into the case after the CCTV inspection,” Gana said.

The incident was said to have occurred on April 8.

Gana debunked claims by Oshemi that the corps owed him some money.

“We don’t pay our personnel directly, because we are registered under the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) and they are in charge of salary payments.

“Our men working at LADOL are being paid stipends into their accounts,” he said.

The NSCDC boss said the corps was taking measures to ensure the incident never occurs again.
