"If the aide carried out such a function, it means, it was done voluntarily without any iota of compulsion," said Okeh.

He claimed the demonstration by the State Security Services personnel was a mark of respect for his principal since he was not compelled to do so. ? ?

"It should also be noted that, a man of the calibre of the Minister who was one time Chief of Army staff is entitled to aids that could help in ensuring that he looks neat at all times."
