Why Nigerians should appreciate DSS boss, FFK explains
He then called on the critics of the DSS boss to appreciate the dedication of Bichi to Nigeria's national security and his fight against corruption.
The former minister made the comment while defending Bichi and the DSS over allegation of poor media management by the secret police by Jackson Ude, a communication expert and investigative journalist.
Fani-Kayode's comment reads in part:
"Permit me to add the following. Had it not been for Bichi and his DSS, Boko Haram and ISWAP would have taken Abuja years ago and democracy may well have been brought to an end by mutinous soldiers during the tenure of @MBuhari.
"He, in collaboration with the leadership of the other intelligence agencies and the military of those days, exposed and thwarted many coup attempts and ensured that the Islamist terrorists were repelled and contained."
