I don’t want your blood money – Immigration boss tells senior officers

Muhammad Babandede

Newly appointed Comptroller-General, C-G, of the Nigeria Immigration Service, NIS, Muhammad Babandede has told Zonal Coordinators and Comptrollers of the Service that he does not want their “blood money”, which he defined as ‘returns’ from “organized crime law enforcement.”

He stated this yesterday at the maiden briefing of comptrollers and other senior officers at the NIS headquarters in Abuja where the C-G unveiled his vision and agenda for the Service. Noting that indiscipline and corruption have become the order of the day, he described himself as a missionary for the realization of greatness for the NIS as well as a missionary of justice and fairness.

Babandede expressed worry over what Immigration officers are doing in liberated territories in the troubled Northeast, lamenting that, “heartless Immigration officers set illegal check points at hinterland to bully and extort money from citizens already devastated by Boko Haram insurgency.” He then declared that he will not accept the Service being turned to “the 2nd grade of Boko Haram”.


Promising to run a most efficient service delivery system in the history of the NIS, he vowed to make more leaders out of the officers, adding that he will empower and build the capacity of all officers at every level of service delivery.
