The deputy director of Information of the department of state security, DSS Marilyn Ogar allayed the fears of members of the National Association of Transport Owners, NARTO that their lives and vehicles will be protected during and after the elections. Her assurance is coming on the heels of speculation that Nigerians already moving away from violence prone areas particularly in the northern part of the country for fear of postelection violence. This has led to fuel scarcity.
According to Ogar ’this service has observed the building up of queues at petrol stations. Investigation has revealed that trucks that would hitherto have loaded products from the south for distribution in the north are reluctant to do so. She assured NARTO and other Unions that adequate security arrangements had been put in place to guarantee their safety. ‘Consequently, brigade commanders, police commissioners and state directors of the DSS have been directed by the Chief of Army Staff, COAS and the Inspector General of Police, IGP and the Director General of State Security to provide adequate security. She concluded by appealing to the general public not to resort to panic buying and hoarding.
“IPOB is being sponsored by those I will call the Coalition of the politically disgruntled and the treasury looters. They believe that by sponsoring this group to destabilize the country and trigger chaos, they will realize their ambition of escaping justice and then be free to dip their hands into the nation’s treasury again.”
