Fresh facts emerged on Sunday on why operatives of the Department of State Security deployed to work with Osun State Governor, Senator Ademola Adeleke, were removed by the state command of the service.
A group Osun Shall Rise Again had brought the issue of the withdrawal of DSS operatives to the fore on Saturday in a statement signed by its secretary and chairman, Saheed Bakare and Lanre Akeju.
OSRA, however, said Adeleke’s ‘unguarded utterances’ to the operatives made the Osun Command withdraw them.
But findings by our correspondent revealed that there was a clash between the police team and the DSS team deployed to work with Adeleke last Thursday.
A reliable security source, who preferred anonymity, that spoke on the issue said, “The DSS headquarters in Abuja had posted an officer to work with Adeleke and assigned to him the role of Chief Security Officer.
The force headquarters in Abuja, it was also learnt, posted a police officer and also assigned to him the role of Chief Security Officer a few weeks after the DSS operatives had resumed work.
The development was said to have created conflict between the two security organisations.
