ogar2Department of State Services, DSS has sacked its former spokesperson, Ms Marilyn Ogar and 44 other top directors.
Other sources however, said two directors, including Ms. Ogar and 13 other senior officials were sent on compulsory retirements.
Nigerian Pilot gathered that the news of the officers’ sack was contained in a signal, a usual way of communicating information in the security organisations.
No official statement has been issued by the secret police to the public and the presumed new spokesman for the service, Mr. Tony Opuiyo, was not assessable for confirmation, but sources within the service confirmed to our correspondent that Marilyn Ogar’s sack is not unconnected to the way she carried out her duties during the last administration.
Other reports have claimed that the new Director-General of the DSS, Musa Daura, said the retirement is the ongoing reorganisation in the Service.
Ogar, a former Deputy Director, Public Affairs Department of the Service, was removed two months ago.
She also enjoyed a last minute promotion, days before the life of ex-president Goodluck Jonathan’s administration which ended on May 29, but President Muhammadu Buhari nullified the said promotion upon assumption of office.
Nigerian Pilot further gathered that while other directors may have been due for retirement, Ogar’s retirement is premature but had to go due to her alleged role in the run-up to the 2015 general elections, where she was accused of partisanship and being an “attack dog”.
According to report, Ogar, who had been under fire since the advent of the new leadership of the DSS, was retired effective last Wednesday, seven years before she is due for retirement.
It will be recalled that Ogar was recalled from a study leave abroad, removed as the spokesperson of the agency and later demoted from the rank of deputy director. She was also redeployed to Maiduguri, Borno State, an action that was rescinded following serious public outcry.
Ms Ogar was also perpetually at loggerheads with the then opposition party, All Progressives Congress, APC, in the run down to the 2015 general elections, and may be paying the price for her alleged partisanship.
