The new director of State Security Service, SSS, in Plateau State, Ibrahim Nyam-Sale, has advocated for death penalty against insurgents, kidnappers and perpetrators of heinous crimes in the state.
Mr. Sale made the advocacy on Monday when he paid a courtesy call on the Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Abok Ayuba in Jos – the state capital.
He said he was at the Speaker’s officer to seek collaboration and synergy towards strengthening security framework in the state.
“I am here to seek your collaboration and synergy while standing on duty. The State House of Assembly is a critical stakeholder, whatever decisions, whatever bills or laws you make it has a positive impact on the security of the state,” Mr Nyam-Sale stated.
SSS boss said he was particularly concerned with the bills on penalty for offenders which was pending before the house.
In his response, the Speaker said the issue of security is of great concern to the House, adding that he was willing to give the service the maximum supports it desires.
“The house upon resumption in office, sometimes in June last year, we made visitations to all security agencies in the state, including the SSS.
“We will, therefore, give you the maximum support needed. On the issues of those bills, we are going to pass them in no distance time,” he assured.
While commending the state government for restoring peace in the state, the Speaker urged the new SSS director to deploy his wealth of experience to curb crimes in the state.
