0

Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, yesterday, ordered the sack of one of his security aides, Friday Eluro, who was caught on video assaulting a woman, and directed full investigation into the incident, with a view to serving the interest of justice.

A statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Charles Aniagwu, said Okowa, having watched the video of the assault on the woman, has directed that the appointment of Eluro as security aide be terminated forthwith to serve as deterrent to others.

He quoted the governor as saying: “In the last three and half years, our administration has worked so hard to entrench the enduring peace in our state and we will not sit back and fold our hands to watch appointees of government or any other person, no matter how highly placed in society, to take laws into their hands.”

The governor, who reportedly frowned at the unwarranted assault on the woman, especially from an appointee of government, who ought to ensure that rule of law is observed in all situations, warned government appointees to be of good behaviour and always remember that they are ambassadors of government and are supposed to be role models in the society.
