How ONSA Responded To My Petition Against Assault And Threat To My Life By A Security Agent -By Jeff Okoroafor

Filed under: National Issues,Press Releases |

Following my formal complaint and petition to the National Security Adviser, in respect to the security agent who assaulted and threatened to shoot me on November 5, 2018, I was invited by the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA) yesterday, November 9, 2018.

I was informed that prior to my arrival, investigation on the issue had already gone far, aided by the information I provided in my tweets regarding the incident. The driver and the security agent in question have both been identified, questioned and now in their custody. And very persistently I was told that ONSA does not take such issues lightly, especially when assault and threat to life are involved.

An unreserved apology was issued to me by the Office of the National Security Adviser and with a guarantee, that investigation on the issue will be expedited and appropriate action taken.

Let me say, in all candidness and without flinching, that ONSA’s response to my complaint and petition was apt and very professional. As we all know, most security agencies of the government often cover up for their errant agents which emboldens them and make them commit even more hideous crimes. ONSA acted very differently. The office was embarrassed and deeply offended by the actions of this security agent.

I hope for the sake of many innocent Nigerians who risk being killed by reckless and overzealous security agents, that ONSA will not drop the ball on this.

  1. Very few Nigerians will take this bold step you’ve taken. What you have done by not allowing this to slide is fight for the generality of Nigerians who are an endangered species when it comes to security agents recklessness and abysmal conduct.

    Thank you sir for standing for humanity.

  5. Truly I have followed you on Twitter for years now, I have also seen you protest for the resxue of Chibok Girls under Jonathan and even under President Muhammadu Buhari and you have always walk your talk. What that officer did was wrong and I hope NSA will prosecute him and send a public apology to you, even ma compensate you for the emotional torture.

    Stay strong my brother.

  6. I am beyond glad that you didn’t allow them to win. Countless of Nigerians get intimidated, harassed and even killed on daily basis with no one to fight for them. Let NSA pursue this to conclusion and better furnish Nigerians with details of actions taken against the bastard security operative of ONSA.

    Well done Mr Jeff Okoroafor, never stop fighting for the poor and voiceless Nigerians.

  7. God almighty will punish all officers in Nigeria. I read the petition who is he that they will not block him is he God? They even told him sorry and he’s there threatening someone nonsense. NSA will not do anything that’s what Buhari told them to kill anyone especially when they sre Shiite members or Igbos. E no go better for them again
