SSS Partially Restores Saraki’s Security Details

SSS Partially Restores Saraki’s Security Details

The State Security Service (SSS) on Tuesday, partially returned some of its operatives who were withdrawn from the Senate President, Bukola Saraki.

The secret police reportedly withdrew nearly two-thirds of personal security guards attached to Mr Saraki and the remaining three presiding officers at the National Assembly on Saturday.

Over a dozen officers were withdrawn from Mr Saraki’s detail alone. But five of them have now been restored, according to sources close to the Senate President.

Details of the development were still murky as at the time of this report.

It was not immediately clear whether the personnel withdrawn from Speaker Yakubu Dogara, Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu and Deputy Speaker Yusuf Lasun have been partially or fully restored alongside Mr Saraki’s.

Recall that since the alleged masterminds of the Offa robbery were arrested by the Police and their subsequent incriminating confessions, read here, there has been many fireworks from the legislature and executive.

And more is still expected as the plot unfolds.
