SSS dismisses 2 operatives accused of armed robbery

The State Security Service (SSS) has dismissed two of its auxiliary workers serving in Akure, Ondo State, for engaging in “illegal operation”.

The two operatives were arraigned before an Akure Chief Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday for alleged armed robbery. The police accused the two SSS operatives of robbing a car dealer, Peter Charles Denis, of the sum of N480,000.

Following the arraignment, the secret police issued a statement in Abuja that the operatives have been dismissed.

The statement named those dismissed as Owolabi Kolawole and Okunola Kayode.

It said that the dismissed officers committed the crime on June 14, adding that they had been handed over to the police for further investigation and prosecution.

“After preliminary investigation, the two staff members, Owolabi Kolawole and Okunola Kayode were handed over to the police for further investigation and prosecution since their action bordered on criminality.

“Subsequently, in line with the service terms and conditions, they have since been dismissed,” Marilyn Ogar, the SSS’s Deputy Director, Public Relations, said.
