The Department of the State Security Services (DSS) has initiated measures against its personnel found to have been negligent in their duties in the attempted “attack” on President Muhammadu Buhari in Kebbi State.
LEADERSHIP Sunday gathered that the Service is not happy with the lapses exhibited by its officials that allowed the suspect, Mohammed Jammil Guddare, gain access to the president.
Confirming the development, the spokesperson of the DSS, Dr Peter Afunanya said, “The Service has reviewed the video of the incident and is taking measures against its personnel found to have been negligent in their duties.”
He further revealed that the DSS wishes to dismiss reports making the rounds that presidential details killed the intruder that tried to break the security cordon to attack the president at Argungu, Kebbi State on March 12, 2020.
He stated that “Guddare made an overzealous but futile attempt to have an unauthorised handshake with the president thus breaching security protocols.
“He was stopped by security details and arrested for thorough investigation.
“Preliminary investigation reveals that he is not a hostile person but an overzealous enthusiast of the president.”
