Wife of the Comptroller General of the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) Martins Kure Abeshi, Blessing Bulus, has allegedly assaulted a deputy superintendent of the service, one Hassan Mustapha Saleh, at the Nigeria Immigration Training School in Kano.

The incident, which followed a minor misunderstanding, took place on Thursday, April 7, 2016, It was learnt.

Blessing, said to be the third wife of the CG, is among new recruits into the service currently undergoing training in the school.

According to eyewitness account, trouble began when Mr. Saleh, a lecturer at the training school, saw Blessing sitting on the staircase of U.K. Umar block while her colleagues were taking their lectures in their respective classes.

Recalling the incident, the witness said, I overheard Mr. Saleh directing the lady to go back to her class from a far distance but she refused.

On reaching the staircase, he stopped and inquired why she was sitting there while lectures were on and therefore ordered her to go back to the lecture hall, but instead of obeying his directives, the lady shouted at him. And when the lecturer responded, the lady started raining abusive words on him before she finally grabbed at his neck and gave him a slap. She slapped him about five times before she finally tore his shirt.

Another witness said this was the second time that officers of the service were having trouble with the lady, saying about two weeks earlier, another senior officer of the service the chief inspector and dean of discipline of the school,Dalhatu Gwarzo had a problem with the lady and was summoned to Abuja to clear his name before the CG.
