From Umar Dankano, Yola
The Adamawa state Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps,NSCDC has refuted any leadership scandal over handing over, as well as taking over of the command between the outgoing and incoming commandants.
Spokesman of the command, DSC Mansur Sajoh made the refutal in a phone interview with our correspondent in Yola, weekend, stressing that it is true that former Commandant Nuradeen Abdullahi has been transferred to another state’s command and Mustapha Talba has been posted to take charge of Adamawa command.
Sajoh maintained that, what happened was an in house administrative matter which already the strategic leadership of the corp in Abuja has since addressed promptly.
Swift investigation by our reporter revealed the outgoing commandant,Nuradeen Abdullahi was transferred out of the state recently but opposed to it vehemently hence,refused to hand over to the newly posted Commandant Talba for reasons best known to him.
Checks at the state command’s head quarters based at the Federal secretariat complex Yola showed that the new sheriff (Talba) reported to the command on Monday 28th September 2020 with the full hope to assume his new office but met a stiff resistance from commandant Abdullahi, who was believed to be taken unaware.
