Operatives of the Directorate of State Security (DSS) have raided the Maitama residence of Bayelsa State monarch, King A.J Turner.

The operatives reportedly carted away some documents, including an undisclsed amount of foreign currency.

The DSS did not disclose why it raided the monarch’s residence.

Meanwhile, in a swift reaction, the Committee for Defence of Democracy (CDD) has condemned the raid describing it as abuse of power and rights.

The CDD also issued a 24-hour ultimatum to the DSS to give explanations and urged it to desist from a glaring war against allies of the former president.

It urged it not to declare needless war against the South-south region, particularly allies of Jonathan.

“If so much honour and respect can be accorded to the traditional institutions in the North and Yorubaland, same institutions in the South-south cannot be subjected to ridicule in the name of political vendetta,” the statement read.
