The Civil Defence, Fire, Immigration and Prisons Services Board (CDFIPB) has approved the retirement of Mr. Aminu Suley, a Deputy Controller-General (DCG) and an Assistant Controller-General (ACG) of Prisons from the Nigerian Prisons Service (NPS).

The Public Relations Officer (PRO) of NPS, Mr. Francis Enobore, in a statement in Abuja yesterday, said their retirement came less than two months after the appointment of the substantive Controller General of NPS, Mr. Ja’afaru Ahmed.

The statement said: “Their letter signed by the Secretary of the Board, Alhaji A. A. Ibrahim dated June 28, 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 NPS.”
