The Department of State Services, DSS, on Thursday released Mr. Ebubechukwu Patrick Okafor, a serving corps member who was arrested by the Service alongside his father, Mr. Ugulu O. Ugulu, PDP LG chairmanship aspirant in Enugu State.


Enugu popular lawyer, Chief AOU Onyema had in a lettter dated January 2, 2024, addressed to the Enugu state director of DSS, prayed the Service to release the detained father and son pending the outcome of their investigation.

In a telephone interview with Daily Gazette, the clients’ lawyer, Chief AOU Onyema said Mr. Ebubechukwu Patrick Okafor has been released.

Barr. Onyema said Mr. Ugulu received a phone call on December 20, 2023 from the DSS inviting him to their office the following day, which he honoured.

As at the time of filing this report, reason for the arrest is not yet known.

However, Barr. Onyema raised concerns about the potential political motivation behind the arrest, given Mr. Ugulu’s involvement in the upcoming Enugu State LGA Chairmanship Election.


He further called for a timely review of the application he submitted, hoping for a swift resolution of whatever issues that may have warranted the arrest and detention.

“Latest update is that the son has been released this evening, remaining his father” Onyema concluded.
