The House of Representatives is set to probe the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).
The investigation will cover alleged irregularities in staff recruitment and promotion in the past 10 years.
This resolution came after Rep. Awaji-Inombek Abiante (PDP-Rivers) and Rep. Dumnamene Dekor (PDP-Rivers) moved a motion.
Abiante alleged that the NSCDC has been disregarding the principles of Federal Character in its recruitment.
He said the process had been marred with irregularities, racketeering, favouritism and nepotism. In addition, the enlistment processes were done without advertisement to notify the public.
The House mandated its Committees on Interior, Federal Character and Public Service Matters to grill the agency’s officials.
