Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom has reacted to the sack of the Director-General of the Department of State Security Services, DSS, Lawal Daura.
Osinbajo, on Tuesday, fired Daura after a meeting with him and the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
The two security chiefs, who arrived Aso Rock at different times, were to update the acting president on security developments, including the invasion of the National Assembly by security officials.
Reacting to Daura’s dismissal, Ortom praised Osinbajo for taking such step.
In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Terver Akase, Ortom called on the presidency to look into other security agencies the way it sacked Daura.
The statement read in part: “The sack of the DSS Director General was long expected, following the manner he ran the Service.
“It was necessary to also look into operations of other security agencies to save the country from the current wave of impunity.”
Governor Ortom had earlier today, condemned the invasion of the National Assembly by men of the Nigerian Police Force and the DSS.
