NAPTIP sacks five, demotes three over bribes


The National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons, on Wednesday, dismissed five of its personnel, including a Deputy Director, for offences ranging from bribery, pilfering of confidential documents, amongst others.

This was as two other officers were demoted by two ranks for soliciting bribes from a human trafficking suspect, while one officer was demoted by one rank for negligence of duty.

“The disciplinary actions followed the approval of the Governing Board of the agency at its meeting of May 25, 2023,” a statement signed by NAPTIP’s Press Officer, Vincent Adekoye, read on Wednesday.

The offences range from corruption, demanding and receiving bribes from suspects and relatives; leaking confidential information to suspects that endangered the lives of colleagues; violation of oath of secrecy; stealing and alteration of official records and absence without official leave.
