marilyn_Ogar-dssThe Spokesperson of the Department of State Security (DSS), under the last administration, Marilyn Ogar, has been compulsorily retired from service.

Sources from the Federal Government agency revealed that Mrs Ogar was investigated over issues relating to her conduct in the last few years, which turned out that she was found guilty on alleged partisanship in the build-up of the 2015 general elections.

Although the former Spokesperson of the DSS is not due for retirement, the action of the security agency is seen as a disciplinary measure.

It will be recalled that Ogar was recalled from a study leave abroad, removed as the spokesperson of the agency and later demoted from the rank of deputy director after she was promoted in the twilight of the Goodluck Jonathan-led administration.
