    Osun govt debunks DSS withdrawal of Adeleke’s security detail

    The Osun State Government has cleared the air on the alleged withdrawal of security detail attached to Governor Ademola Adeleke, by the Department of State Service.

    A group, Osun Shall Rise Again, on Saturday, claimed that the leadership of the DSS had withdrawn its officers attached to Adeleke, following a disagreement.

    OSRA disclosed this in a statement obtained in Osogbo on Saturday, signed by its Secretary and Chairman, Saheed Bakare and Lanre Akeju, respectively.

    The group further alleged that DSS took the step after Adeleke made ‘unguarded utterances’ before the personnel deployed to work with him.

     

    The statement further read in part, “The development angered the DSS headquarters and after making contacts, they decided to withdraw their personnel.

    “After the withdrawal, the governor apparently realising his mistakes decided to reach out to plead. He is being expected in Abuja on Monday, where he will be explaining himself and reassure the DSS that he can be trusted.”

    But when contacted, the spokesperson for the governor, Olawale Rasheed, said there was no crises regarding the governor’s security team.

    He further said, “the Executive Governor is still setting up his team from security to other areas of the new government. Many issues are being addressed.

    “So on this particular one, I can assure you there is nothing like crisis or otherwise. If there is an inter-agency rivalry, relevant authorities will address it.

    “I can assure the public that there is no cause for alarm. This administration is still at a formative stage.”

    Speaking further on Sunday, Rasheed said, “The attention of the Osun State Government has been drawn to a report on the alleged withdrawal of security personnel from Governor Ademola Adeleke.

    “We want to clarify that it is a minor disagreement between officers of the Department of State Service and the police.

    “The matter has been reported to the headquarters of the two security agencies for resolution. The issue is being sorted out.

    “We reassure members of the public that there is no cause for alarm. Your governor is fully secured and governance is proceeding without let or hindrance.”
