Immigration recalls dismissed offic

By Magdalene Ukuedojor

The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), on Wednesday, submitted a Memorandum of Settlement to the National Industrial Court, Abuja, on agreement reached to reinstate Mr Sule Abdul, dismissed in 2015.

Counsel to the NIS, Mr Usman Awachi, told the court that it had reached this agreement with the claimant, and would like the court to adopt same as judgment.

It would be recalled that Abdul, an Immigration Assistant, dragged his employer to court, contesting his illegal dismissal over alleged misconduct in 2015.

Both parties, however, had urged the court to grant them leave to explore settlement in the matter.

Counsel to the claimant, Mr Iheanyichukwu Maraizu, confirmed the settlement and urged the court to enter it as judgment.

The judge, Justice Ebeye Isele, adopted the Memorandum of Settlement as judgment and entered it accordingly.
