Former Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corp (NSCDC) Commandant Obafaiye Shem will perhaps think twice next time he is asked to appear on TV. In this shocking clip from the breakfast show Sunrise Daily, the Commandant is asked repeatedly for the web address of the NSCDC and fails to give the correct answer. After being asked for the fourth time, the Commandant exclaims “www.nscdc” and then coughs to obscure his full answer.
Unfortunately for Obafaiye Shem things have gone from bad to worse. The embarrassing clip quickly went viral with thousands watching it on YouTube. It was reported shortly after Obafaiye Shem appeared on Sunrise Daily that he was replaced as NSCDC Commandant for Lagos State with Adesuyi Clement.
By the way, just to put the record straight, the NSCDC’s website is www.nscdc.gov.ng. Here you can find all the latest news on the NSCDC including information on ongoing recruitment exercises.
Rumours abound about whether Obafaiye Shem was let go due to this faux pas or for unconnected reasons. What do you think? Feel free to let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
