*CDD Describes Action Unlawful *Also see what DSS carted away house during the raid
The Department of State Security [DSS] had, on Monday, raided the Abuja residence of Bayelsa Monarch, King A.J Turner located in Maitama District.
According to LEADERSHIP, King Turner, a close ally of former president, Goodluck Jonathan’s residence was ransacked by DSS operatives carting away some items.
In a swift reaction, the Committee for Defence of Democracy (CDD) has condemned the raid, describing it as unlawful and abuse of power and rights.
Several doors were left broken in the wake of the raid
The CDD wondered what could warrant the raid of the residence of the Bayelsa monarch if not political vendetta.
“Consequent upon the latest action of the DSS invading the residence of His Royal Highness, King A.J Turner, the Civil Society situation room is issuing a 24-hour ultimatum to the DSS to desist from this glaring war against the South South region, particularly allies of former president Goodluck Jonathan.
“If so much honour and respect can be accorded to the traditional institutions in the North and Yoruba land, same institutions in the South South cannot be subjected to ridicule in the name of political vendetta,” CDD Warned.
