Drama As SSS, NSCDC Officials Engaged in Fisticuffs

It was an embarrassing show of shame yesterday as a uniformed official of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) and that of State Security Services (SSS) threw heavy blows at each other over a disagreement.

The incident which was witnessed by LEADERSHIP Friday took place in front of Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs, opposite the Eagle Square, Central Business District, Abuja.

Trouble which led to exchange of blows started when the SSS official who wore a black suit and a neck-tie drove to a halt and packed his car. The NSCDC official blamed him for having allegedly violated traffic regulation as the road was blocked at both ends supposedly because of Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) election taking place at the Eagle Square.

Subsequently, a heated argument ensued between the two security operatives, each fuming uncontrollably.

“You are a fool. You are an idiot. People more than you have obeyed the rule; so, who are you?”, the NSCDC official told the estranged SSS fellow.

As if suffocating under the abuse, the SSS official stretched his hands and slapped the NSCDC operative. Further, he released another punch.

Further angered by this, the NSCDC official ran to one of his colleagues to drop his gun and struck a heavy blow on the SSS official who staggered and fell at once.

This attracted sympathisers who came to broker peace, otherwise the situation would have degenerated as other NSCDC officials at the scene were fuming with rage over the fate of their colleague.

“You have no shame. You are an SSS official fighting a fellow security officer”, one of the NSCDC personnels said.
