Retired DSS Officer Alleges Threat To Life

Retired DSS Officer Alleges Threat To Life

A retired personnel of the Department of State Services (DSS), Akin Adeyi, has made a Save Our Soul call to the security agencies to protect him from some powerful people threatening his life in Osun state.

Adeyi who is the MD/CEO of Security Express Concerns Limited, Kwality Security Services Limited and Kwality Resort and Bar located beside Olorunda Local government INEC Office, Osogbo in a statement said he was compelled to write for the second time this year to seek for the protection of the Osun State police command and the DSS over several sponsored assaults and threat to his life by some privileged people in the state.

“It is a fact that I exercised my right as a member of the People’s Democratic Party early 2021 when I approached the PDP Governorship Aspirants Screening Appeal Committee with a petition against the academic qualifications and records of Senator Ademola Adeleke”.

According to Adeyi who is a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain in Osun State, the 13 Man Panel, which was headed by Professor Jerry Gana, had other members who were former governors and Senators after two days of critically studying his my petition and attached documents which were Senator Ademola Adeleke’s credentials, panel agreed that the credentials contained lots of damaging errors and fraudulent claims.

“The panel thanked and appreciated me and thereafter directed that the Osun PDP and the aspirant’s handlers work on the documents before its final submission to INEC.

“Arising from this, my life has been frequently threatened such that I had to formally complain to the police authority and the DSS also the Osun and Nigeria public."

He complained that since then, the threats and attacks have continue unabated, but he decided to keep his cool, bearing in mind because he is not after nobody and can only be held responsible for what he said not what people infer and the trust speaks for itself.

"On Saturday, 3rd December, 2022 at about 4am, some people led about one hundred thugs and a few policemen clothed in black Tee Shirts uniforms to his business place, Kwality Bar & Resort to attack his staff with cutlasses, shouting and asking for his whereabout.

“Till this moment, the credentials of the Governor still remain a subject of litigation but I have since said what needed to be said and moved on.

"At this juncture, however, it is apparent that silence is no longer golden."

Before it’s illegal and criminal demolition by Governor Ademola Adeleke’s agents, Kwality Resort spread over four plots of land and its worth was in the several millions of naira," he maintained.

He said to the best of his knowledge, freedom of expression is a constitutional right, and expressing his view about the controversial academic record of senator Ademola which remains clouded till now is never a crime to warrant the state-backed demolition of his business place overnight.

“The place was demolished and leveled without prior notice while the facilities therein were carted away while some others were left in the open.

"I have in the last 16 hours examined the situation and can confirm that those who are behind the dastardly act are not done.

"I believe that the development is just a preamble to what is yet to come."

Adeyi appealed to the police and DSS to look into the matter and save his life and family members.
