Dr Ahmed Audi, Commandant-General of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), on Monday in Abuja dismissed fraud and corruption allegations levelled against him on some social media websites.
The NSCDC management also frowned at the allegation in a statement issued by the Corps’ Public Relations Officer, Mr Olusola Odumosu.
Odumosu said that the attention of the Corps management was drawn to a spurious allegation of fraud and massive corruption against Dr Audi.
He advised the public to be wary of any frivolous, misleading and malicious information that could distract Dr Audi from effective service delivery.
“ The Corps remains a committed, selfless and utterly disciplined organisation with an above-board operational efficiency and coordinated strategy to ensure the fulfilment of its core mandates,’’ Odumosu stated.
According to him, the Corps is not willing to raise issues with any of the websites that circulated the fake news, but warned them to desist.
“While the Corps does not wish to join issues with anyone on the matter, the commandant-general and the management team wish to assure the public of its sincerity.
“Sincerity to rejig, reform and restructure the Corps in line with clear ministerial directive to nip current security challenges in the bud,’’ he stated.
