The State Commandant of NSCDC, Mr Adamu Soja, who confirmed
the incident, said Jekada was suspended six weeks ago by the command for absconding
"We received a petition from his family over some problems
and I summoned him, but he refused to appear in the office.

track him and bring him to the office, but he was nowhere to be found.
"Jekada is also being wanted by us and he will face justice
anytime we get him,’’ he said.
