A Deputy Controller-General and an Assistant Controller-General of Prisons have been prematurely retired from service. They are Aminu Suley and Ali Bala Salami respectively.
Their retirement was announced on Monday via a statement issued in Abuja by Prisons Public Relations Officer, DCP Francis Enobore, on behalf of the Controller-General of Prisons.
Enobore said the two Prisons chiefs were asked to go “following the appointment of Ja’afaru Ahmed as the Controller-General of the Nigerian Prisons Service.” He said their retirement was approved by “the Civil Defence, Fire, Immigration and Prisons Services Board (CDFIPB) in an emergency meeting held on the 27th of June, 2016.”
According to Enobore, “The letter signed by the Secretary of the Board, Alh. A. A. Ibrahim, dated 28th June, 2016 indicated that the decision was taken due to the officers’ seniority in service to the new Controller-General of Prisons and in consonance with military and paramilitary convention.
“While wishing them good luck in their future endeavours, the (CDFIPB) commended the officers for their contributions to the development of the Nigerian Prisons Service.”
