The Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has described the sack of the Director General of Department for State Services (DSS), Lawal Daura as a step in the right direction.

According to him, the sack was long overdue following the manner in which Mr Daura ran the service.

He said this in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Terver Akase, on Tuesday.

Ortom, therefore, urged the Presidency to also investigate operations of other security agencies to save the country from what he described as the current wave of impunity.

Earlier, he condemned the blockage of the National Assembly by men of the Nigerian Police Force and DSS.

The security officials had stormed the Assembly complex in the early hours of Tuesday, barricading the entrance and preventing lawmakers from getting in.

Journalists were also barred from entering the complex with the DSS officials claiming that the blockage was an order “from above.”
