The Nigeria Immigration Service has suspended the transfer of five of its officers to Borno, Yobe, Kano and other states for participating in a social media competition known as #Bopdaddy challenge.



Before the official confirmation of the suspension of the transfer of the officers, the Musician Folarinde Falana aka Falz who is a lawyer has written a letter of understanding to the NIS comptroller general on why the tranfer needed to be suspended, he showed a copy of the letter through his twitter handle.

The #Bopdaddy Challenge involves people video recording themselves transforming into a variety of clothes.

The NIS made this known in a series of tweets on its Twitter handle on Friday, saying the transfer was put on hold pending the outcome of an investigation into their conduct.

It will be recalled that the five officers – Priscilla Irabor, Catherine Bakura, Blessing Udida, Binti Attabor, and Ockiya Eneni – were transferred to states far from their duty posts for participating in the #Bopdaddy challenge initiated by musician, Folarinde Falana aka Falz.

The service transferred Irabor from the Lagos State Command to the Nigeria Immigration Training School, Kano, while Attabor was posted from the service headquarters in Abuja to Yobe State Command.

Eneni was moved from the Combined Expatriate Residence Permit and Aliens Card Production Facility to the Borno State Command.

Udida from the FCT Command was sent to the Akwa Ibom State Command while Bakura was transferred from the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, to the NIS Training School Ahoada, Rivers State.

After their transfer, there was an outrage on social media, with Nigerians, including Falz, the son of Femi Falana (SAN), urging the NIS to reverse its position.

Reacting to the outcry, the NIS tweeted, “The attention of the Comptroller General Muhammad Babandede MFR has been drawn to some trending matters on some social media platforms regarding the deployment of some of our Personnel to some Formations across the country.

“It is important to note that staff deployment remains a vital practice of regimented organisations such as ours and should be seen as such.

“As an agency, we maintain zero tolerance to any matters bordering on offences against discipline among members of our workforce irrespective of gender.

“We have a high premium for staff development and indeed encourage personal efforts but that must be within the confines of our rules and regulations.

“The matter involving the Personnel in question is still being investigated and therefore, the Comptroller General has directed that the earlier Posting Order be put on hold pending the conclusion of the investigation.”

The five women had been seen changing from their immigration uniforms into clothes that the immigration authorities deemed too revealing.
