Human rights lawyer, Femi Falana, says the decision of the Southern governors that security agencies must notify them as the chief security officer of their states before they carry out any operation within their domain as ‘late’.
The SAN said this on Channels Television’s ‘Politics Today’ programme on Monday.
Recall that on Monday, Southern Governors discussed the invasion carried out on the Ibadan residence of Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho by operatives of the Department of State Services, DSS, and other matters of national concern, including insecurity, open grazing and the Electoral Act.
The Governors demanded prior notification if, for any reason, federal agencies need to undertake an operation and also set September 21, 2021, as the deadline for anti-open grazing law promulgation in member-states.
Reacting to the development, Falana said, “It is a decision that is coming rather late.
“Governors are chief security officers of their states in line with the constitution.
