Dr. Ahmed Audi, the Commandant General of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, has directed that the necessary surgery for one of his employees who was injured while performing official duties begin right away.
This information was released in a statement on Monday that was signed by Olusola Odumosu, the Commission spokeswoman.
Audi issued the instruction while on a scheduled visit to the National Hospital in Abuja to personally examine and evaluate the patient’s health status and the results of their treatment to date.
A day before the presidential and National Assembly elections, on Friday, February 24, 2023, Asc II Ibrahim Adam, 40, was one of the Lagos State Command employees involved in a car accident that killed one of the occupants shortly after takeoff from the Corps national headquarters. The accident happened at the Giri junction in Abuja.
Five accident victims were released from the hospital after experiencing remarkable health improvements.
In order to ensure that the officer who has been diagnosed with spinal cord injury and multiple fractures receives the necessary care, the CG gave the order to the Head of Unit of the NSCDC Health and Medical Services, Oba Jude, who was assigned to supervise and coordinate the victim’s treatment.
The NSCDC helmsman reaffirmed that getting the officers back on their feet is his top priority.
“These are all committed and dedicated policemen, and my top priority is to get them all healed and back on their feet,” he said.
“I saw that there are encouraging signals and anticipate a more profound improvement following the suggested procedure.
No matter how much the surgery and any related treatments will cost, I am prepared to pay for them.
Audi urged the patient, who was overjoyed to see the CG by his bedside in the hospital, to keep believing in God, who will totally heal him, and prayed that another situation like this wouldn’t happen in the Corps.
In addition to comforting the victims’ families, the CG asked them to continue praying for God to finish the victims’ healing as the Corps performed its own duties in providing for the injured.
