Some Immigration officers have been invited for questioning and sanctions over unprofessional conduct at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport in Lagos.

The Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), Mr Muhammad Babandede, has threatened to apply stiffer sanctions on any officer who engages in professional misconduct.

Babandede told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday in Abuja that the threat became necessary to improve service delivery to the public.

He said that the‎ measure was part of the ongoing reforms to reposition the NIS in line with international best practice.

The NIS boss said he visited the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) Lagos, on “undercover mission” recently to monitor the NIS operations.

He said during his visit, some officers were caught engaging in unprofessional activities.

“The officers had been invited to the NIS headquarters in Abuja for questioning and appropriate sanctions.

“This is to ensure that passengers are not subjected to unnecessary delays and that our services are efficient and in line with international best practice,” Babandede said.

According to him, his team has scheduled a similar visit to all other airports/formations in the country to rid the service of bad eggs.

He, therefore, warned officers and men of the NIS to sit up or get weeded out.

The comptroller-general reiterated his commitment to ensure efficient service delivery in the issuance of travel documents to Nigerians/foreigners.

He also pledged to strengthen border surveillance to stem illegal immigration in the country. (NAN)
