DSS Withdraws Saraki Dogara’s Security Details
The Department of State Service has withdrawn some of the security details attached to the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki and the Speaker, House of Representatives.
A source at the National Assembly told our correspondent that the security aides had been asked to report at the DSS headquarters immediately.
This, according to the source may not have any connection with the invitation of the Senate president by the police over the Offa bank robbery.
However, it was learnt that the New Peoples Democratic Party faction of the All Progressives Congress fumed against the development.
The nPDP had a meeting with the APC leadership about two weeks ago to renew their relationship but with the current development, the ruling party may divide along interest line.
Saraki was indicted by one of the suspects in the Offa bank robbery but the Senate president had denied the allegation, saying it was a plot by the police Inspector General, Ibrahim Idris to robe him in.
The DSS has not stated the reason for the withdrawal of Saraki and Dogara’s security details. The department has no information officer, making it difficult to know why the security details were withdrawn.
