He disclosed this in a statement by the President’s spokesman, Mr. Femi Adesina yesterday.
According to him, the steps have become compulsory as serious concern must trail the unauthorized release of 295 smuggled Petroleum tankers.
He added that anyone found wanting in the crime should be immediately withdrawn and replaced.
His words, “I commend security agencies a job well done, however, finds it disheartening to learn that 295 smuggled petroleum tankers were released without due authorization on Dec. 17, 2019, by some security officials charged with the responsibility of protecting our borders.”
”Sequel to this act, the National Security Adviser (NSA) was directed to set up a Board of Inquiry to investigate the crime, and it was recommended to the President that all officials (civilian or security operatives) found to have connived to undermine government’s efforts should be withdrawn from the border drill and severely sanctioned by their respective organisations.”
“The President has accepted the recommendations and directed the immediate withdrawal and replacement of all those found culpable.
”He has also directed that their respective organisations should mete immediate appropriate disciplinary actions to them.”
