The Lagos State Commandant of the National Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, Mr. Obafaiye Shem, the man who postulated the “my oga at the top” mantra has been suspended from office by the Ministry of Interior.

Vanguard gathered  from  dependable sources at the  Corps headquarters in Abuja, that the commandant was suspended after pressure emanated from its  supervising ministry over the conduct of the Lagos Commandant in a recent interview in Lagos.

According to sources who craved anonymity, the Corps leadership  had earlier set up a committee  to investigate the incident,  said to have put the NSCDC in bad light, but its report had not been announced  or revealed to Mr. Shem, who is said to be bereaved and attending his father’s burial at the weekend, in Kogi State.

Shem ordeal started when he appeared on Channels Television morning programme ‘Sunrise’ and when asked the NSCDC website he said:

“Hmmm, the website is, excuse me, my Oga at the top knows the website”, he again, cleared his throat and said: “My Oga at the top is working on the website and I don’t have them”.

When the presenters insisted that he give a functioning website address of the para-military, he dropped the bombshell: “ww.nscdc, that’s all”. Immediately, the interview went viral and has become so popular to the extent that t-shirts with “my oga at the top” insignia has been produced and selling like hot cake across the country. Some DJ’s and musicians have done what they called remix of the interview.

When contacted, the Deputy Commandant General, (Administration) Engr. Suleiman Akanbi Bello, said he was not aware of the suspension as he is currently at the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies, NIPSS, for a training programme.


So what do you think? Do you support the suspension of Mr Shem? If yes, why? If no, why not?
