Confusion Over Alleged Withdrawal Of Saraki, Dogara’s Security Details

THERE is confusion over the present state of security details attached to Bukola Saraki, Senate President and that of Yakubu Dogara, Speaker, House of Representatives.

There were reports that the State Security Service (SSS) withdrew the security details of the top lawmakers.

The report emerged hours after the Nigeria Police summoned Mr Saraki to appear before its probe panel investigating his link with arrested suspects who took part in Offa robbery in Kwara State.

The security outfit which self-styled itself as the Department of State Services (DSS) ordered its operatives attached to the lawmakers to report themselves at their headquarters in Abuja, Vanguard Newspaper reported.

In its own version, TheCable reports that the action is believed to have been at the instance of the presidency.

The DSS since its director-general, Lawal Daura, was appointed, has no known spokesperson making the confirmation of this story difficult.

But a report from another national daily quoting an unknown spokesman claimed the report is false as there was no such directive from the agency.

“I can tell you authoritatively that the service never gave such directive. For emphasis, we have not withdrawn neither are we planning to withdraw our personnel in the security details of the two presiding officers of the National Assembly. There is no iota of truth in that report,” Daily Sun quoted Nnanna Nnochiri, an acclaimed spokesman of the agency to have said.

Efforts to reach Saraki’s aide, Yusuph Olaniyonu, for confirmation was not successful as he did not answer calls or reply to an sms sent to his known telephone number as at press time.
