DSS fires operative over taking bribe

DSS alerts on plans to incite religious violence in Nigeria

The Department of State Services (DSS) said it has dismissed one of its staff, Jaja Otelemaba, for taking bribe from motorists while on election duty in Ekiti.

Public Relations Officer of the Service, Mr Peter Afunanya, in a statement on Saturday, said the officer was seen on social media where he was negotiating with a motorist for financial patronage.

“The fact is that when the news broke, the Service initiated a line of investigative actions.

“These include the search and identification of the said officer; his withdrawal from the duty post and issuance of a memo as applicable to his cadre and rank,” he said.

Afunanya said that Otelemaba was tried in an orderly room and summarily dismissed in line with the Service’s disciplinary procedures.

The spokesman said that the dismissal was in accordance with the Director General of the Service’s commitment to promote discipline in the Service.

He stressed that his stance on issues concerning discipline has continued to prove his intolerance for misconduct and discreditable behaviour.

” The Service reaffirms its commitment to professionalism, excellence and the rule of law.

“The DSS, as usual, rededicates itself to the security of the ongoing electoral exercise and reassures the nation of its sustained transparency and accountability in dealing with citizens,” he said.
