The Nigerian Correctional Service (NCoS), Kogi State Command, has ordered the immediate arrest of an officer over alleged complicity in the disappearance of two rifles and some quantities of ammunition.
A statement by DCS Nihi Sesan, the Command’s Public Relations Officer, which was made available to journalists in Abuja on Wednesday, did not mention the name of the suspect.
David Igbago, the Controller of Corrections of the Command, ordered the arrest of the officer.
“The missing items were discovered during a routine monthly audit of arms and ammunition in the Command’s armoury.
“While the suspect is being grilled, the State Controller has vowed to ensure that no stone will be left unturned in unravelling the circumstances surrounding the criminal act and bringing the culprits to justice,” the statement said.
Igbago assured members of the public of his commitment to the security of Kogi State in general and the Custodial Centres in the state in particular.
