YOLA – The out-going Controller of Immigration in Adamawa State, Alhaji Abdulrauf Keji, has advised personnel of Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) in the state to be more vigilant.
Keji gave the advice in Yola on Friday in his farewell address to the personnel under the Adamawa Command, saying the attitude was necessary in view of the security challenges in the North-East zone.
He said the need for more vigilance was necessary for the command to check the influx of illegal aliens along the 600km Nigerian border with Cameroon on the Adamawa axis.
“We, as the gate keepers, cannot afford to be asleep, we must be extra vigilant to effectively contribute our quota to national security, ” Keji said.

He also commended the support and cooperation from sister security agencies in the state.
Keji, who was recently promoted from Controller to Assistant Controller-General, has now been transferred Abuja.
The highpoint of the send-off for Keji was a special parade and presentation of gifts by the officers and men of the Adamawa command. (NAN)[eap_ad_3]
