A Former Director of the State Secret Service (SSS), Mike Ejiofor has reacted to speculations that the security body recycle suspects at different times and for different crimes.

Mr Ejiofor, who was discussing the security situation in Nigeria as a guest on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily on Tuesday, reacted to the speculations in two ways.

“My first reaction (when I heard the speculation) was that I got excited. I got excited that Nigerians are now becoming very conscious of their environment. This is good for our democracy and development,” he said.

The second reaction Mr Ejiofor gave was an explanation of what happened when the suspected killers of Olaitan Oyerinde, the Principal Secretary to Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State were paraded in Abuja by the SSS.

Following the parade of the six suspects, there were complains in different quarters that the shirts worn by three of the suspected killers of late Oyerinde were the same worn by suspected members of Boko Haram paraded by the SSS three months ago.
