There was mild drama on Wednesday as some top management staff of Nigerian Social Insurance Trust Fund attending promotion interview, abandoned their cars and scaled perimeter fence to evade arrest by FCT COVID-19 Enforcement team.
NSITF was alleged to have gathered a large crowd of its staff across the country for a promotional Examination exercise at M and M Event Centre, Area 11, Garki.
Head, Media and Enlightenment of the Team, Ikharo Attah, said his team stormed the NSITF venue for the exercise, following a tip off, that the exercise was going on without compliance with COVID-19 health protocols.
He confirmed that while the General Manager, Health Safety and Environment and other top Directors escaped, one person was arrested.
According to Attah,while NSITF labour leaders resisted arrest of the offending officers, they also took advantage of the rowdy situation to jump through the fence and escaped.
Attah who expressed disappointment that a frontline agency of government, like NSITF failed to lead by example, also vowed that the fleeing directors and others who flaunted the Presidential regulations shall be prosecuted
