Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose said the Department of State Services (DSS) is behaving like a terror gang by approaching a court in Abuja to secure an order to detain Dr. Ifeanyi Ubah for another 14 days after a Lagos High Court ordered he should be released within 48 hours or be charged to court.
The governor at a press conference in Abuja Thursday decried disobedience of court orders by agencies of the Federal Government in the past two years.
He warned that the judiciary should be mindful of being used by the DSS to sustain its regime of tyranny by granting orders allowing the service to detain Nigerians perpetually.
“Our courts should not allow themselves to become willing tools to promote and sustain dictatorship. They should be able to stand up against the tyrannical acts of the DSS by asking when it became the duty of the service to arrest and detain Nigerians for offences still being investigated,” Fayose advised.
The governor noted that head of Nigeria’s Islamic Movement (IMN), Ibrahim El-Zakzaky is still being kept in detention since December 13, 2015, which the DSS said it was for his personal safety.
