The Comptroller General (CG) of the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS), Muhammad Babandede has disclosed that the border police will employ 1,112 officers in its ongoing recruitment drive.

Babandede made this known yesterday during a chat with the media.

According to him, the current recruitment drive was meant to fill the shortfall of slots left after the service had re-absorbed 888 of 2,000 officers engaged in May 2015, who were later disengaged in August of the same year.

“I inherited a big problem when I came on board with a lot of young officers protesting on the streets about the recruitment that was cancelled in 2015,” Babandede said, in reference to the 2,000 officers that were fired by the Muhammadu Buhari administration in August, 2015.

The Comptroller General said it was based on his recommendation the sacked 2,000 officers were re-screened to verify their credentials and security reports.

He further said that at the end of the exercise the Immigration Board authenticated and reabsorbed 888 officers back to the service; adding that the ongoing employment was therefore aimed at providing replacement for the 1,112 laid off by the re-screening of the initial 2,000 hired in May 2015.

New accuser claims Brett Kavanaugh put his private part in her face at Yale

New accuser claims Brett Kavanaugh put his private part in her face at Yale
A new woman has accused Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault. The new accuser claims Kavanaugh exposed himself without her consent during their college years at Yale.

The New Yorker published a bombshell story on Sunday ahead of Kavanaugh’s Thursday hearing in D.C., where he’s already set to face-off against Christine Blasey Ford who has accused him of a sexual assault when they were both in high school.

The sexual assault claims brought against Brett Kavanaugh led to the Twitter hashtag #WhyIDidn’tReport after US President Donald Trump defended him and asked his accuser why she didn’t speak up years ago (read here).

In the latest accusation made against Brett Kavanaugh, a woman named Deborah Ramirez claims Kavanaugh put his exposed penis in her face at a dorm party during their freshman year at Yale sometime between 1983 and ’84. She says she got drunk during a drinking game, and that at one point a male classmate (not Kavanaugh) pointed a dildo at her.

In this new story, written by Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer, the woman says soon after she was on the floor, foggy and slurring her words when she says she remembers seeing a real penis smack dab in her face. She tells the New Yorker she recalls other students telling her to kiss it. Ramirez says she pushed the person away, touching the penis in the process, and then saw Kavanaugh standing next to her, pulling his pants up and laughing.

She says she also remembers another student shouting down the hall, “Brett Kavanaugh just put his penis in Debbie’s face.” Ramirez says she specifically remembers hearing his full name.

Ramirez admits that parts of her memory on the alleged incident are fuzzy, but the New Yorker notes “After six days of carefully assessing her memories and consulting with her attorney” Ramirez felt confident in the details of her story.

As for Kavanaugh, he tells the New Yorker:

This alleged event from 35 years ago did not happen. The people who knew me then know that this did not happen, and have said so. This is a smear, plain and simple. I look forward to testifying on Thursday about the truth, and defending my good name–and the reputation for character and integrity I have spent a lifetime building–against these last-minute allegations.

A White House spokesperson also expressed support for Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh is still waiting to be confirmed to the Supreme Court as President Trump’s latest nominee.
