From Ganiyu Nasirudeen, Abuja The Department of States Service (DSS) has described the Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Chibuke Amaechi’s recent accusation of corruption in the Nigerian Military as self seeking and against the collective well being of the country.
DSS Deputy Director of Public Relations, Marilyn Ogar in a statement Monday in Abuja. She warned that the security establishment would not condone acts that were inimical to the general interest of the country, claiming similar statements by politicians in the past, had encouraged violence that resulted in the loss of innocent lives and property.
“The attention of the Department of State Services has been drawn to inciting and unguarded statements and utterances by some politicians ahead of the 2015 general elections.
“Of particular interest is the statement of a serving governor calling on men of the armed forces to rise up in protest against constituted authority, with the intent to undermine the government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria” revealed the statement.
The security outfit declared that the current would be the last warning to all those seeking to truncate the country’s democracy by their “careless and obviously mischievous utterances and actions to desist and retrace their steps immediately”.
It added that the DSS and all security agencies would not rest on their oars for successful conduct of the next year general elections in Nigeria.
While airing his views recently among other factors, militating against success of the Federal Government’s to win the war against the Boko Haram insurgents attacks in the North Eastern part of the country, Governor, Amaechi, blamed the challenge on corruption in the Military hierarchy and not on adequate funding as public is made to believe.
The Governor condemned the army conviction by the various court martial, while justified their right to protest against poor working condition.
