Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, on Friday, September 4, 2015, condemned the Thursday,

invasion of the Akwa Ibom State Government House by armed men of the

Department of State Security (DSS).

He also called for the immediate sack of the agency’s Director General, Alhaji Lawal Daura.

Addressing a press conference in Ado-Ekiti on behalf of the governor, Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere

Olayinka, described the invasion as part of the sinister plot by the

All Progressives Congress (APC) to circumvent the will of the people

of the South-South and South-East states controlled by the Peoples

Democratic Party (PDP), using the DSS.

He said; “To say the least, invasion of the Akwa Ibom State Government

House on Thursday ordered by Daura, is a rape of democracy and

invitation to chaos and anarchy. It is authoritarian, dictatorial and

I condemn it strongly.

“It is unfortunate that this is happening under President Buhari’s

watch, and painful that Alhaji Lawal Daura is drawing Nigeria back to

the Military era.”

Governor Fayose, who recalled the arrest of the Independent National

Electoral Commission (INEC) Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in

Akwa Ibom State, Mr. Austin Okojie, by men of the DSS in July, wondered

why “the DSS under Alhaji Lawal Daura that has turned Akwa Ibom State

and other states into centre of its draconian operations has not deemed it necessary to invite for questioning, the Yobe State INEC

REC, Mr. Abu Zarma, in whose bank account N15 million alleged to be a

bribe was found.”
