Department Of Secret Service (Dss)
President Muhammadu Buhari, on Thursday, September 13, named Yusuf Magaji Bichi as the new director-general of the Department of State Services. Bichi is now to take over from Matthew Seiyeifa, who replaced sacked Lawal Daura.
The national chairman of the All progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole has congratulated Yusuf Bichi, on his appointed as the new director general of the State Security Services (SSS) by President Muhammadu Buhari.
The Department of State Services(DSS) said some dark forces in the society are fuelling a series of speculative reports about its internal affairs, with the aim of bringing it in collision with the federal government.
The Department of State Security (DSS) have reportedly started releasing some detainees following the sack of its former director-general, Lawal Daura by then-acting president, Yemi Osinbajo while President Buhari was away.
Jones Abiri, the Bayelsa-based journalist who was arrested and detained for more than two years by the DSS, has explained the circumstances that resulted in his arrest and how he was linked to a militant group in the Niger-Delta.
A week after the invasion of the National Assembly complex by men of the DSS, the chairman of the Senate committee on navy, Isa Misau and his counterpart senator, Ibrahim, said they would sponsor a motion to probe the invasion.
