Former DSS Spokesperson, Marilyn Ogar

Marilyn Ogar, the former spokesperson of Department of State Service (DSS), has challenged the federal government resolution to have compulsorily asked her to rest from her official duty.

Aggrieved Ogar has, therefore, taken a legal action against the federal government by filing a suit before the national industrial court in Abuja, calling for justice over her retirement from service in September 2015.

Ogar was retired along with 14 other officers in 2015, seven years before she was due for retirement.

NIGERIA NEWS notes that when the case was called for hearing on Friday, May 11, the respondents’ counsel were not present in court.

The claimant’s counsel, Adeola Adedipe, informed the court that the defendants were served originating summon and hearing notice.

Going further, Adedipe said that although the defendants had entered a conditional appearance, they did not file any counter processes within 14 days of service of the originating summon.

Presiding over the case, Justice Olufunke Anuwe, ordered that the defendants be served hearing notice and adjourned the case until June 25, for hearing.

It was gathered that Orgar wants the court to among others things: declare that her retirement was illegal, nullify her demotion from deputy director to assistant director.

Joined in the suit are the attorney- general of the federation and the director-general of DSS

Meanwhile, in a previous report, NIGERIA NEWS had reported that Nigerian Senate appeals Omo-Agege’s high court judgement.
