BreakingNews 24/6/15 - Buhari under Pressure to Disband DSS, Nigeria's Secret Police

[ Masterweb Reports: Rev Obinna Akukwe reports ] - President Muhammadu Buhari has come under intense pressure from various security top brass to disband the Department of State Services (DSS), Nigerian Secret Police. This is due to the alleged infamous role the once prestigious institution played in futile attempt to truncate democracy.
 
 
Top security sources who spoke to the leadership of Igbo Mandate Congress (IMC) on conditions of anonymity said that there are four groups that want the DSS to be overhauled. The first group believes that the DSS should be disbanded out rightly and its operatives absorbed into the Nigerian Police Force, if they so wish.
 
 
The second  group wants the DSS to be another department within the Nigerian Army, complementing the DMI,  just as the Road Safety (FRSC) was forced to be under the Nigerian Police for a while before public outcry delivered them.
 
 
The third pressure group believes that President Buhari should sideline and render them redundant, starved of funds and made irrelevant while the fourth group  wants a complete overhaul of the leadership of the body, and the sack of about forty officers identified as acting in manners inimical to the security of the nation.
 
 
Reeling out the sins of the DSS, the security sources told the leadership of Igbo Mandate Congress (IMC) that the DSS has a hand in the failed attempt to assassinate President Buhari last year. Other alleged misconduct of the DSS include: 
 
 
1. Conniving with agents of terrorism by withholding sensitive information that there is a plot assassinate   Muhammadu Buhari while the later was on his way from Abuja to Katsina, an event that led to the death of over 100 Nigerians in Kawo Area of Kaduna State in July, 2014
 
 
2. Conniving with agents of terrorism to withhold information that there is an attempt to checkmate the excesses of the Emir of Kano, HRH Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, by allowing agents of terrorism to attack Kano Central Mosque in November, 2014, leading to death of over 200 persons
 
 
3. Bugging all the telephones lines , email and spying on prominent opposition leaders especially Muhammadu Buhari, Bola Tinubu, Rotimi Amechi, Rabiu Kwqakwanso, Nasir El Rufai among others and using the information so obtained as instruments of political blackmail.
 
 
4 Labelling Muhammadu Buhari and leaders of the opposition All Progressive Congress (APC) as sponsors of Boko Haram while intelligence sources proves contrary.
 
 
5 Deploying operatives in Anambra State to ensure that the APC Gubernatorial candidate , Dr Chris Ngige, was rigged out by ensuring that election materials never reached the strongholds of the former governor, thereby denying the APC a strong foothold in South East
 
 
6. Deploying operatives of the DSS to help the PDP rig out Governor Fayemi of Ekiti State, thereby denying the APC another victory at the polls
 
 
7. Deploying the same apparatus in Osun State, an act vehemently resisted by the masses.. Deploying masked security men round the capital of Osun State in such a manner that portrayed them as terrorists.
 
 
8. Making spurious claims that the opposition APC has hacked into INEC date base, a claim the electoral umpire disclaimed. Based on such spurious claims, raiding the Lagos State Headquarters of the APC and carting away confidential files, all in an attempt to blackmail and intimidate the opposition.
 
 
9.  Detaining the contractor who printed the PVC Card Reader without due process, until days after the elections were over
 
 
10. Producing, through the unethical release of classified information, documentaries meant to tarnish the image of Muhammadu Buhari and Bola Tinubu and causing such to be aired on electronic media.
 
 
11. Stripping naked and forcing Pastor Musa Dikwa to write a letter of apology to leader of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN),  ,Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, for claiming that some pastors were given N7 billion naira to initiate hate campaigns against the person of Muhammadu Buhari.
 
 
12 Initiating, suggesting, contacting and making plans to truncate democracy in the event of a Buhari victory at the polls by making arrangements and contacts  for a possible  Interim Government.
 
 
13. Making contingency plans that in case the interim government option sails through, those marked as strong resistance to be eliminated by the strike force.
 
 
14 Giving undue security covering to Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, known Boko Haram Sponsor
 
 
Therefore, a highly disappointed Buhari was said  not to be disposed to working with a set of people who are brazen in their attempt to truncate democracy, when they are established to protect  the state. That was why he rejected a recent attempt to post about 234 operatives to the Villa, and also rejected attempts to post a new person to him as the CSO. The DSS have also not been privy to sensitive security briefings since Buhari was sworn in.
 
 
Igbo Mandate Congress cannot verify the veracity of these information and the culpability of the DSS as alleged, however, contacts  and friends of the group, especially in  Kano, Abuja, Borno , Yobe, Bauchi, Jigawa, Sokoto, Kaduna States and some parts of the north have from time t
