The three PCOs are: Mr Ibrahim Liman, who was the PCO of Ikoyi Passport Office, Mrs Adeola Adesokan, the PCO of Festac Passport office and Mr NJ Dashe.

Assistant Controller – General ( ACG), in charge of Zone A Command , Ikeja, Lagos state, Mrs Oluremi Talabi, confirmed the new development.

The Zone is in-charge of the operations in Lagos and Ogun states.

According to the ACG, the redeployment was a normal routine in the service.

“Reporters have been calling me to find out the major reason for the removal. They asked if they were removed because they were involved in some sharp practices.

“ All, I can say for now is that, it is a regular routine for the NIS to deploy its officers.

“There is nothing bad in redeployment. As other events unfold, the service will update Nigerians,” she said.

Talabi confirmed that Liman and Adesokan have been transferred to the service headquarters in Abuja.

Dashe was transferred to the zone ‘A’ command of the service which covers both Ogun and Lagos states
