The Senate has asked the Inspector General of Police, Usman Baba, to investigate the sudden disappearance of one Raymond Gaadi, a deputy commandant of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, who was meant to assume office at the Bayelsa State command but upon arrival, went missing.
The resolution of the upper chamber follows a motion by Senator Emmanuel Orker –Jev (PDP, Benue North-West).
He said, “I am moving this motion on the disappearance of Raymond Gaadi, who was posted from Enugu to Bayelsa State to resume but never assumed office.
“The deputy commandant had raised an alarm that the officer he was meant to take over from was not only resisting handover but was threatening him. Two days after the deputy commandant raised an alarm over a threat to his life, he went missing.”
Senator Jev lamented that the authority of NSCDC has displayed little or no concern over the matter since October 29 2022.
The senate resolved to urge the commandant of the NSCDC to direct an internal investigation into the matter.
The lawmakers also urged the IGP to direct a full criminal investigation into Gaadi’s disappearance.
