@News Africa: NIS speaks on death officer in Sudan


NIS speaks on death officer in Sudan
The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has broken silence on the recent killing of its senior officer, Habibu Almu, in Khartoum, the capital of Sudan.
The Service in a statement on Saturday, through its spokesman, Mr Sunday James, said the Comptroller-General (CG), 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.
The spokesman of the service said the immigration boss was in high-level discussion with the Minister of Foreign Affairs, under whose supervision are foreign missions, over the matter.
He noted that, “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.
Recall that, there had been reports earlier that 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.
