Benue state governor, Samuel Ortom has described the sack of the Director General of Department for State Services (DSS), Lawal Daura, as a step in the right direction.
Governor Ortom says the sack of the DSS boss was long expected, following the manner Daura ran the service.
He urged the presidency to also look into operations of other security agencies to save the country from the current wave of impunity.
Governor Ortom had earlier today, condemned the invasion of the National Assembly by men of the Nigerian Police Force and DSS.
The governor insists that the action of the security operatives has made the country a laughing stock and is capable of degenerating into lawlessness.
He said there are rules and procedures as well as constitutional provisions that govern the conduct of the business of the National Assembly and that any attempt to break them is condemnable.

News of the arrest was said to have sparked wild jubilation at the DSS headquarters, even as he is currently being allegedly detained at the SARS headquarters.
