BREAKING news: Pres. Buhari fires SSS Director General Ita Ekpenyong, Appoints Replacement

President Muhammadu Buhari has fired Director General of the State Security Service (SSS), Ita Ekpenyong
 Lawal Musa Daura is appointed as a replacement.
The news was announced on Thursday by the Head of Civil Service of the Federation, Danladi.
Daura, is said to be returning to the SSS from retirement.
According to the report: The removal of Ekpenyong, who was appointed DG of the agency on September 8, 2010, has
long been expected.
Under him, the SSS became openly partisan, especially in the run-up to the 2015 general elections.

Rather than gathering intelligence necessary to make the country safe, the agency busied itself more with harassing and arresting opposition figures, ransacking firms and offices with ties to the All Progressives Congress (APC) and appearing on television to disparage opposition politicians and their party.
