Former Benue State Governor, Gabriel Suswam, is in fresh trouble as he has been invited by the Department of State Services, DSS, to clear the air on arms and ammunition seized from exotic cars in a luxury apartment in Abuja said to belong to him. The security department confirmed, last night, that Suswan was already helping them in investigation into the shocking discovery made by its officials, following intelligence report that some dangerous items were stashed in the boots of cars parked in the premises of the property. DSS in a statement signed by its spokesman, Tony Opuiyo, said: “Following this discovery, the Service launched further investigation which revealed that the cars and the recovered items belong to the former governor of Benue State, Gabriel Suswam, who has already been invited by the Service and currently helping in the investigation.
“It is in the light of this latest development that the Service wishes to sound a note of warning to persons and groups that it will no longer tolerate any acts of lawlessness by those who ought to be law abiding and responsible citizens. The Service has also observed with total dismay the inciting utterances of some political actors whose activities heat-up the polity. It also wishes to express its disappointment with these politicians who, in their desperation, are engaged in hate speeches and even sponsorship of radio campaign jingles when the electoral umpire has not authorized such campaigns in line with the Electoral Act. “More worrisome is the unpatriotic involvement of some media outfits in these divisive tendencies which negate their constitutional role as the fourth estate of the realm. In line with its statutory mandate of maintaining the peace and internal security of the country, the Service, hereby, restates its commitment to go after anyone, no matter how highly placed, who engages in acts capable of causing the breach of peace in the country.’’
