The Vigilante Group of Nigeria (VGN) on Sunday said it had suspended its Lagos State Commander, Ademola Akeripa, over alleged misconduct and insubordination.

The VGN made the disclosure at a meeting with its members which ended late on Saturday at its new office in Ikeja, Lagos.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the group appointed Mr James Udomma as its interim Lagos State Commander.

The suspension, decided upon by the National Executive Members of the group at its headquarters in Kaduna, was disseminated to the members by the state’s Deputy Commander, Emmanuel Ayisire.

According to Ayisire, the letter sent from the headquarters said that the suspended commander was also warned to stay away from VGN premises until investigations were concluded in the allegations.

“Subject to the resolution of the National Executive Members of the VGN, you are hereby suspended to allow for proper investigation into various allegations and evidences produced by the executives of Lagos chapter.

“You are hereby warned to stay away from all VGN premises until determination of this case.

“Please note that your suspension is as a result of your total gross misconduct and insubordination which is contrary to the provision of the institution under article 16 sub-sections 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 7 of the constitution of VGN.

“Failure to comply with this directive, the National Headquarters of this organisation will not hesitate to use all legal means to maintain peace and orderliness in Lagos.

“You are invited to appear at the headquarters of the group in Kaduna on or before October 28 to defend the petition against you.”

The interim state commander, while speaking with the Lagos members promised to uphold and protect the interest of the group and Nigeria.

He pleaded with every member to work cooperate with him to contribute to the development of the country and to make sure crime was reduced to the barest minimum. (NAN)
