Two female officers of the Nigeria Immigration Service, Delta State Command, yesterday, slumped at the parade ground mounted to receive the newly posted Zonal Co-ordinator of Nigeria Immigration Service, Zone G, comprising Delta, Anambra, Edo, Bayelsa and Enugu States, Assistant Comptroller General Mohammed Shaibu.

The incident almost marred the colourful parade but the occasion continued while the collapsed officers were carried out of the parade ground for medical attention.

They slumped one after the other while the Immigration Service boss was addressing the officers and men of the command at about noon.

Fielding questions from newsmen later, Shaibu said the service was collaborating with other sister agencies to ensure effective policing of the country’s borders and at the same time ensuring close monitoring of foreigners flocking into the country.

Said he: “Definitely, the issue is of trying to checkmate the influx of non Nigerians and in doing this, we are also doing it consciously to ensure that whatever relationship we have with any country is not being threatened.

“We are collaborating with other security officers who are involved in border management. As a service, we work as a team to ensure that whatever border challenge that this country experiences is properly tackled collectively.”

“For any nation or any society to progress, it cannot be only occupant of that particular country. Definitely, you have to accept people and when you are accepting people, those who are coming, you should make sure that they come with travelling documents and properly documented. And even when they come in, monitoring is one of the blueprints of the present administration.

“So, apart from ensuring that there is proper documentation at the point of entry by the time they come inside the country we make sure that we monitor them and as we are monitoring them where you have cases of people who maybe one way or the other step on the rules you ensure that proper action is taken”, he added.

He had earlier asked the officers to be red alert in carrying out their duties and make discipline their watchword too. [Vanguard]
