Mr. Obafaiye Shem, the Lagos State Commandant of the Nigeria Security
and Civil Defence Corps, has denied reports that he has been suspended
from work and insisted that he is still in charge of the command. He says his ‘Oga at the top’ has not suspended him and he was
on casual leave, to perform the burial rites of his father, Pa Michael
Obafaiye, who died last month and will resume work next Thursday.
”I am still the State Commandant of NSCSC and I am determined to work hard to expose the vandals across the State,” Shem said.
He also denied that his wife visited the headquarters of Channels TV
to protest, stating that, ”my wife was in the village with me for my
father’s burial and there is no way she could have visited the
television station to carry out a protest. She is a learned person and
somebody of that caliber would not have been involved in such a jinx. I
see all these as a distraction which is not enough to hinder me from
achieving my goal in Lagos State.”
The Commandant became an Internet hit, after his Channels TV
interview, where he could not give the correct NSCDC’s website on air.
