Breaking: Kassim Afegbua’s Lawyers Query DSS Invitation, Says Motive Must Be Formally Clarified
Lead counsel to Prince Kassim Afegbua, Dr. Kayode Ajulo has formally queried the impromptu Invitation that his client received from the Department of State Security Service (DSS) Wednesday evening which was only communicated through a telephone conversation.
In a written letter to the ”Yellow House” dated 8th February, 2018 (today) and signed by Ajulo, the legal practitioner stated that though his client has indicated readiness to honour the said invitation but equally expressed curiosity over the unusual invitation, especially coming on the heels of recent events pertaining to the discharge of his official assignment to his principal, General Ibrahim Babangida, GCFR.
The letter further sought to know the motive behind the invitation of Prince Afegbua by the Service Director General, Mr Lawal Musa Daura in due course and should be quickly cleared. This request according Ajulo is achievable by extending a Verified Formal Invitation, whose content should specify the reason(s) for his invitation.
Below is the letter in Full:
8th February, 2018
The Director General,
Department of State Security
Attn. Alh. Haliru (AD External Security)
RE: INVITATION OF PRINCE KASSIM AFEGBUA
We act as Solicitors to Prince Kassim Afegbua, hereinafter referred to as “Our Client” and on whose firm instruction we write you.
Our client, a renowned Journalist, former Commissioner of Information in Edo State, a patriotic and law abiding Nigerian only last night got information that he has an invitation to honour with the Director General of the State Security Service at the Department of State Service Headquarters, Abuja.
In availing us of the above development, we have accordingly advised our client and, true to character, he has indicated his readiness to honour the said invitation even as he expressed curiosity over the unusual invitation, especially coming on the heels of recent events pertaining to the discharge of his duty to his principal, General Ibrahim Babangida, GCFR.
Our client’s concerns are wary and valid, as very little information has been availed him on the context of the said invitation.
While bound by his sense of duty as a citizen of Nigeria, and with a clear conscience eager to meet with your Director General in due course, we must on his behalf demand that the shroud of ambivalence surrounding his invitation be quickly cleared.
This is achievable by extending a verified formal invitation, whose content should specify the reason(s) for his invitation.
Accept please the assurances of our highest esteem.
For: Kayode Ajulo & Co. Castle of Law
Dr. Kayode Ajulo
