NGO Condemns ‘DSS Gestapo Style’ Of Handling Issues



A non-governmental organisation, National Patriots Forum (NPF) has condemned the Directorate of State Services (DSS) attempt to forcefully enter the house of the immediate past acting director general of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA) Amb.  Muhammed Dauda with the aim of forcefully evicting him.

The national president, NPF, Comrade Isa Tijjani in a statement issued yesterday  in Abuja, expressed dismay over what it described as ‘’unprofessional, despicable, barbaric and shameful conduct of the DSS.”

Tijjani said the ugly scenario has further put to disrepute the mercenary action of the said agency, which has the penchant of putting the president and his government to ridicule.

The statement reads in part, ‘’It is now evidently clear that these actions may not be unconnected with damning revelations of the corrupt tendencies and attempts to siphon and steal monies in the care of the NIA as revealed in a memo to the House Committee on Intelligence by the immediate past DG.

‘’This affront on a sister agency by another goes to tell how inter agency rivalry has gone pretty awry in the conduct of intelligence overview in our country.

‘’It is worthy of note that even his predecessor Amb Ayo Oke who was relieved from the position of the DG of the NIA enjoys the comfort of staying in his official residence till now, making one to wonder what could have been the excuse for such an archaic method of intimidation with the aim of stifling the truth from the public.

‘’In the light of the foregoing, we want Nigerians and indeed the President to note and know that the life and safety of Amb Dauda squarely rests on the President and his apparatus of state, more over the National Assembly should take note of the ugly dimension, twist and ensure a comprehensive investigation that would be made public for the consumption of all Nigerians.’’

He said that the NGO would follow the situation to its logical conclusion and ensure that justice is not only seen to be done but done in all ramifications.
