NSCDC: Tweeps react as ‘Oga at the Top’ becomes deputy CG


The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps officer Shem Obafiaye, famous for the viral “Oga at the top” remark in 2013, has been promoted to the rank of deputy commandant-general.

Obafiaye, who served as the Lagos commandant of the NSCDC, struggled humorously to provide the NSCDC website during a guest appearance on Channels Television.

In a statement released on Thursday, December 14, NSCDC announced the promotion of Obafiaye and two others to the position of deputy commandants general.

The Minister of Interior, Dr. Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, decorated the three officers, including Fasiu Adeyinka, former Kwara commandant, and Raji, former Imo commandant.

Tunji-Ojo also tweeted about the promotion, stating, “As the chairman of the Civil Defence, Correctional, Fire and Immigration Services Board, I decorated the three new Deputy Commandants General of the @official_NSCDC today.”
