The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has finally reacted to the recent killing of its senior officer, Habibu Almu, in Khartoum, the capital of Sudan.
In a statement on Saturday, spokesman of the agency, Mr Sunday James, he said the Comptroller-General, Muhammad Babandede, received the news with shock.
James said the CG was being briefed on the circumstances surrounding the death of Almu, who was an Assistant Comptroller of Immigration.
He said the immigration boss was in high-level discussion with the Minister of Foreign Affairs, under whose supervision are foreign missions, over the matter.
According to him, “the discussion centres on investigation into the killing with the host authorities as it borders on international diplomacy, and repatriation of the remains of the deceased senior officer.”
He added that the comptroller general was in touch with the late officer’s family.
Almu, who was an Immigration Attache 1 in the Nigerian Mission in Khartoum, was reportedly stabbed to death in his home in the Sudanese capital on Thursday.
