The Nigeria Immigration Service, NIS, has punished five of its female officers by redeploying them to Borno, Yobe, Kano and other States for participating in Nigerian singer, Falz ‘Bop Daddy Challenge’.
The five officers were in April queried by the NIS in a memo asking them to explain why they should not be disciplined for violating the agency’s internal code.
However, in a document shared by Sahara Reporters, the five officers, Priscilla Irabor, Catherine Bakura, Blessing Udida, Binti Attabor, and Ockiya Eneni were redeployed to different places of assignment as contained in a memo dated May 12, 2020 and signed by Assistant Comptroller-General, Iam Haliru.

The reason for their transfer was not expressly stated.
The memo read in part, “Kindly note that the relocation is at no cost to the service and ensure compliance report reaches the Comptroller General of Immigration on or before May 19, 2020.”
Eneni was moved from the Combined Expatriate Residence Permit and Aliens Card Production Facility to the Borno State Command.
The service transferred Irabor from the Lagos State Command to the Nigeria Immigration Training School, Kano, while Attabor was posted from the service headquarters in Abuja to Yobe State Command.
Udida from the FCT Command was sent to the Akwa Ibom State Command while Bakura was transferred from the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, to the NIS Training School Ahoada, Rivers State.
