Secretary to Delta State Government (SSG), Mr Festus Ovie Agas was allegedly slapped by the younger brother to the State Governor, Mr Tony Okowa, resulting in a fresh controversy in the state.
It was gathered that the governor’s younger brother was said to had last Thursday stormed the office of the SSG over untreated files.
Sources at the office said Tony Okowa, chairman Delta State Sports Commission had gone to the SSG’s office to demand why he (SSG) had not treated the files he considered to be very urgent.
But apparently angered by the SSG’s alleged responses that the files were not urgent to him, Okowa in the process allegedly closed in on him (SSG) and slapped him.
Attempt by the Delta State Government to deny, and sweep the incident under the carpet failed as it has continued to generate reactions from critical stakeholders in the state, particularly those considered to be loyal to the SSG.
