Our reporter| The Osun state government on Sunday explained that the withdrawal of officers of the Department of State Services (DSS) from the governor’s security detail followed a “minor disagreement”.
A group, Osun Shall Rise Again (OSRA), had in a statement claimed that the DSS officers were withdrawn following repeated insults hurled at them by Ademola Adeleke, governor of Osun.
But in a statement on Sunday, Olawale Rasheed, Adeleke’s spokesperson, said the DSS officers were withdrawn following a minor disagreement with the police team.
According to Rasheed, the issue has been reported to the headquarters of the two security agencies.
“The attention of the Osun State Government has been drawn to a report on the alleged withdrawal of security personnel from Governor Ademola Adeleke,” the statement reads.
“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.”
