The Nigeria Immigration Service has suspended the transfer of five of its officers to Borno, Yobe, Kano and other states for participating in a social media competition known as #Bopdaddy challenge.
The NIS made this known in a series of tweets on its Twitter handle on Friday, saying the transfer was put on hold pending the outcome of an investigation into their conduct.
It was reported the five officers – Priscilla Irabor, Catherine Bakura, Blessing Udida, Binti Attabor, and Ockiya Eneni – were transferred to states far from their duty posts for participating in the #Bopdaddy challenge initiated by musician, Folarinde Falana aka Falz.
Eneni was moved from the Combined Expatriate Residence Permit and Aliens Card Production Facility to the Borno State Command.
The service transferred Irabor from the Lagos State Command to the Nigeria Immigration Training School, Kano, while Attabor was posted from the service headquarters in Abuja to Yobe State Command.
