Ex Anambra Governor, Ezeife, Pat Utomi Were Disgraced In Awka By The DSS by chiefobdk(m): 7:11am On May 09, 2016
The President does not seem to have some conscience by
doing certain things agains some people. He does it without
thinking back as if there are some people that should be
suppressed and some people who are above the law”, says
Ezeife, a former governor of Anambra state.

Chukwuemeka Ezeife, a former governor of Anambra state
shares the humiliating/provocative experience he, Pat Utomi
and some other South-East individuals suffered in the hands
of the DSS, on orders from Abuja, Nigeria’s seat of power.

In Dr Ezeife words in a mail he shared 22hrs ago: “Let me
tell you what is happening now. Now I am in Awka, where
young students decided to launch a book on the vision of
our heroes past. They decided to use Odumegwu Ojukwu’s
name in the launching. Some boys ago met me to play a role
in the launching after I went to the University of Calabar to
attend a very beautiful conference where Maitama Sule, Ken
Nnamani, Ibrahim Mantu and others were in attendance.
“The same students organized something at Women
Development Centre, Awka. But I arrived Awka at night, I
started hearing that the Department of State Service (DSS)
was discouraging the event in Awka, the students had paid
the money for using the Women Development Centre.

I arrived at night, I went straight to the governor, Dr. Willie
Obiano but the governor was not in town.
“I was only able to get through to the Chief of Staff and I
asked him why some people would be treated this way; why
the President continued to treat the South East as if he
wants them to leave Nigeria. I do not know. Some of us are
forced to ask that question. Nigeria is not Buhari, and
Buhari is not Nigeria.

“I went to the state commissioner of Police in Anambra and
discussed the issue with him, and of course it was not his
business, but it is part of it because if there is violence, he
would be involved in controlling it. But there can be no
violence because the people are so peaceful; nobody was
carrying gun or weapon and there was nothing in the
launching that is against the government.

“I went to look for the state Director of the SSS, but I could
not find him that night. I met some small young officers but
the Anambra state Police commisioner was kind enough to
send me the telephone number of the state Director of SSS
whom I talked to. I explained all the circumstances and how
peaceful everything was and I discovered I was one of the

“Those who talked to the young boys told them they do not
like me and Pat Utomi playing a role in the launching. I
called the Director of SSS and he told me that the directive
was from Abuja, that it was a directive from above and that
there was nothing he could do. He said that I should talk to
the DSS in Abuja and I knew that they all travelled with the
President. I tried to reach the operation officer and his
phone would ring and would not answer. This is what is
called humiliation in a very dehumanizing way.

“If the launching was in praise of Ojukwu, what could be
wrong in praising him in Anambra state. This is what I am
talking about. You would look at the situation and you
wonder that people who have no business of carrying Ak-47,
carry the weopons and saying that they are taking care of
And the DSS told a lie against Abia state, a lie that
could cause ethnic crisis in the country. There is no
investigation on that. They did not go to the Police; they just
went out and accused the Indigenous People of Biafra
(IPOB). Five people were involved in the kidnapping, two
Igbo were involved and they said IPOB buried people. I do
not know what is happening. We should not talk with
bitterness too much.”
