Udom EmmanuelAkwa Ibom State Governor, Mr. Udom Emmanuel, has urged Nigerians and Akwa Ibom people in particular to remain calm as regards the perceived assault by operatives of the Department of State Security (DSS) on their recent inversion of Akwa Ibom State Government House.

Speaking with newsmen on arrival from Abuja at Ibom International Airport, the Governor said that the matter is before the office the President.

He maintained that President Muhammadu Buhari has given assurance to look into the matter.

“President Buhari is on top of the situation. He is the President of Nigeria and not the President of a particular party. We just have to be calm and see how he will go about the matter.”

DSS operative on Thursday, September 3, 2015, invaded the Akwa Ibom State Government Lodge.

During the raid, the operative broke into the rooms and guest houses in the Government House. This action drew the ire of Akwa Ibom people and groups who have condemned the act describing it as a rape on the costly democratic rule the country is experiencing.
