The governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi, has sacked Emma Uzor, his Chief Press Secretary.
Mr Uzor’s removal was announced on Tuesday on the Ebonyi state broadcasting corporation by Kenneth Ugbala, the Secretary to the State Government.
Mr Ugbala said the reason for the CPS’ sack had to do with national security, which caused embarrassment to Mr Umahi as chairman of South-East Governors Forum.
Mr Uzor was directed to hand over to Clement Nweke, the principal secretary to the governor, with immediate effect.
The governor also recently sacked Ken Ohuo, commissioner for information and state orientation, for alleged underperformance.
