The Nigerian Civil Defence, Fire, Immigration and Prisons Services Board (CDFIPB) has suspended three senior Prisons officers over their involvement in the issuance of an unauthorized medical report on former Adamawa State Governor Bala Ngelari, who is currently serving a 5-year sentence in Yola Prison.
According to a press release issued on Tuesday, the affected officers are CP Peter Yeni Tenkwa, DCP Abubakar Abaka, and SP John Bukar. Their suspension was approved by the Director/Secretary of the CDFIPB, Sunday Dan Ogu, on Monday.
A new controller and officer-in-charge have since been assigned to head the Adamawa State Command and Yola Prison, respectively. The Board also assigned a new medical doctor to oversee the prison medical clinic.
