NDSF PRESS RELEASE - MR PRESIDENT CALL ALL SECURITY AGENCIES TO ORDER
The leadership of Nigeria Diaspora Security Forum is saddened by the unfortunate situation in which security operatives attached to the convoy of the Controller General of Prisons, Dr. Peter Ezenwa Ekpendu, on Wednesday evening allegedly assaulted a female lawmaker, Hon. Onyemeachi Mprakpor, for overtaking his convoy within the premises of the National Assembly.
In a democratic society where everyone is subject to the Rule of Law; this action is unacceptable and NDSF is calling on His Excellency President Muhammad Buhari GCFR to immediately call to order all security operatives to desist from unprofessional damage and attack of properties and persons.
If President Muhammad Buhari GCFR convoy comply with traffic rules then security chiefs are not above the law and it is now imperative to stop the unnecessary harassment of ordinary Nigerians who are now subjected to intimidation, property damage and personal assault without legal remedy availability to the affected individuals.
NDSF is calling on Nigeria Legislators to seize this rare opportunity to read the riot act to security chiefs that they are not above the law and should henceforth comply with traffic rules.
NDSF is calling on the Controller General of Prisons, Dr. Peter Ezenwa Ekpendu, to issue an unreserved apology to Nigerians in a national newspaper for not proactively stopping the assault of an unarmed Nigerian.
In this era of change, the administration of President Muhammad Buhari GCFR must not allow security agencies to operate in a manner that damage the reputation of Nigeria brand as a democratic society where the Rule of law is supreme.
