CD disclaims ultimatum on sacking of SSS DG
The Campaign for Democracy (CD) yesterday dissociated itself from a 14-day ultimatum allegedly given to the Federal Government to sack the Director-General of Department of State Services (DSS), Lawal Musa Duara, over a statement he was quoted to have said regarding the killing of five Fulani herdsmen and two easterners in Abia State.
A national daily (not The Guardian) reported yesterday in a statement, signed by one Dede Uzor A Uzor calling for the immediate sacking of the DG, who according to him, allegedly accused the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and the Movement for the Actualisation of Soverign State of Biafra (MASSOB) for the murder.
According to Uzor, investigations had reportedly revealed that the deceased were killed by some “kidnappers who were on the rampage in some parts of Abia and not IPOB or MASSOB members, as alleged by Daura.”
But CD’s National Chairman, Comrade Bako Abdul Usman in a statement in Abeokuta yesterday, insisted that Uzor was not an officer of the organisation as claimed.
“We want to categorically state that Dede Uzor A. Uzor is an ordinary member of the Campaign for Democracy and cannot say or give ultimatum on behalf of the National Executive Council of the organisation as the Campaign for Democracy is not known with such frivolities, and does not toy with serious national issues as being perpetrated by Dede Uzor.
“As a matter of fact, Dede Uzor has serious reported cases of public extortion, financial gratification and is at present defending himself before our Ethics Committee over some charges against him and therefore does not only have moral justification to give ultimatum to the government but also cannot be representing the image, credibility and integrity of the Campaign for Democracy in any way,” he stated.”
