Aggrieved officers, who retired recently from the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), on Sunday asked President Muhammadu Buhari to probe alleged mismanagement of over €20 million (N7.5 billion) European Union funds released to the NIS under the immediate past Minister for the Interior, Mr. Abba Moro.
Aside, the retired officers gravely lamented negative impact, which they said, internal struggle for power and relevance between the former ministers and ex-Comptroller-General, Mr David Paradang had upon the service, thus leading to violation of federal character clause in the 1999 Constitution.

The officers, who did not want their names mentioned, vented their grievances about the rots in the NIS at a session with THISDAY in Lagos, noting that what had been happening in the NIS was worse than that of Nigeria Custom Service (NCS) and Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).

They said they had petitioned the Department of State Service (DSS) to investigate the mismanagement of the EU funds on immigration, which they said, was officially called the tenth EU fund apart from other donors’ funds, though nothing had been heard from the DSS about the petition.
