Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has withdrawn the officials attached to House of Representatives member, member, Shina Peller.
This is coming after the sponsored a bill seeking to scrap the security agency.

Part of the statement by the agency reads: “Following the directive of the Commandant General on the necessity of the deployment of the command personnel for an urgent national security assignment, on behalf of the state commandant, I hereby withdraw all personnel attached to you.
“This is to meet up with the urgent national need.
