Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose has ordered the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) to vacate its state command headquarters located along Afao Road with immediate effect or pay N27.5million to government coffers within 5days.


The state government during the administration of Chief Segun Oni allocated the facility to the NSCDC in 2010 to ease the accommodation problems faced by the security agency and other federal government institutions.


The complex was initially constructed by the Fayose during his first stint in office and was commissioned by former President Olusegun Obasanjo but was abandoned after Fayose was impeached from office in 2006.


A source in the know quoted Fayose to have said “the need became necessary because the State may find it difficult to pay salaries of civil servants in 2017” despite just received N8.8 billion Paris Club refund.


The governor was also alleged to have said that “the era of government providing accommodation for the security outfits in Ekiti is gone, stressing that he cannot be providing counterpart support for a Buhari-led Government agency as an opposition leader.”


A source in NSCDC craved anonymity said: “During a visit by the Commandant of the Corps with the governor, the government had valued the facility at N27.5m and every effort to appeal to the Governor to tarry a while to get the Corps organized was rebuffed by Fayose.


“Tension rose at the Command Headquarters as the NSCDC officers were infuriated that despite the N250m monthly security the governor collects and no logistic support whatsoever since 2014 when Mr Fayose was sworn-in, it was a rude shock that he could shut down the Command Headquarters within such a very short notice.”


Speaking further, the source said: “As it stands, the officers of the Corps as law-abiding and highly disciplined public servants will not take laws into her hands as law enforcement officers, rather, we have commenced the process of contributing half of our salaries and will also solicit for funds to buy the place for our comfort.
