NIS Recruitment Tragedy: Sack Moro now- NLC, NANS, others tell Jonathan

Outraged by weekend’s tragedy which claimed at least 16 job applicants, including four pregnant women who turned up for the aptitude test for employment into the Nigeria Immigration Service at various centres across the federation, National Human Rights Commission Chairman, National Association of Nigerian students as well as labour unions, yesterday, called for the resignation of the Minister of Interior, Mr. Abba Moro and Comptroller General of Immigration, Mr David Parradang.

It will be recalled that a recruitment drive by the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) on Saturday, ended in death, tears and sorrow for many at most of the centres across the country.

In all 19 people died: three pregnant women in Benin, eight applicants made up of six women and two men in Abuja, three in Minna and five in Port Harcourt including a pregnant woman.
