The Nigerian Correctional Service (NCoS) has suspended the Deputy Controller of Corrections, Abubakar Sani, over an alleged recruitment scam.

In a statement issued by its spokesman, Augustine Njoku, the Service said the deputy director was suspended after a charge of gross misconduct was reported against him.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had earlier arraigned Sani at the Federal High Court, Katsina, on a six-count charge of conspiracy and obtaining by false pretence.
