Terrorism- DSS Launches Manhunt On Emefiele

Men of State Security Service, known as Department of Security Service (DSS) have launched a manhunt on the governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Godwin Emefiele.

 

Newsonline reports that officers of the internal security agency of Nigeria charged with identifying demostic intelligence gathering and nipping threats to internal security were deployed to several officers to monitor the CBN Headquarters, Mr. Emefiele’s family residence in Lagos, and the Abuja home of businessman, Christopher Emefiele, unrelated by blood.

 

A top officer of DSS who prefers anonymity told Peoples Gazette that the deployment came from an assistant director and could not immediately say whether or not Director-General Yusuf Bichi signed off on it.

 

 

“We have different teams of at least two each monitoring those places,” the officer said under anonymity to disclose cursory specifics of an ongoing operation. “We don’t know if they have more people deployed to even more places, but we did not see any signal from the DG’s office to suggest his involvement at this point,” the online news medium quoted.

 

The officers were still quietly monitoring the locations as of Saturday morning. Christopher Emefiele did not comment on whether or not he had noticed the presence of state agents near his property. Mr. Emefiele’s phones rang through on Saturday morning and his wife Margaret declined a request seeking comments.

 

The DSS had sought warrant arrest from a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja to arrest Emefiele on grounds of alleged terrorism financing.

 

Though the Federal High Court declined the warrant sought by DSS, the Saturday (today) move to arrest the CBN governor is one of the methods the internal intelligence agency may deploy to arrest the CBN governor, a lawyer said.
