Amaokwe-Item in Abia state, home of embattled Director-General of Security and Exchange Commission, Ms Arumma Oteh, have risen in defense of their daughter who they allege is being ‘attacked’ by some Nigerians. This view was expressed by her kinsmen in a Save Our Soul message to President Jonathan.
Speaking through the Secretary-General of Amaokwe-Item Development Welfare Union, Mr. Sunny Ogele, the community expressed concern at what it described the incessant politically- motivated attacks on Oteh.
According to Ogele, this unwarranted attacks have made it necessary for the community to speak out as it has become clear to it that those after Oteh’s job were becoming very desperate by the day.
The community also noted that same people who played key roles in the fraud that led to the collapse of Nigerian Stock Exchange had been after Oteh’s job since she cleared the rot in the organisation.
Arunman Oteh was appointed to the position of Director General SEC in January 2010 and has over the last couple of months, been in a constant struggle to keep her job as both chambers of the National Assembly have called on President Jonathan to relieve her of her job sighting her ‘high-handedness’ among other reasons for the call.
