The Chief Security Officer to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Mr. Gordon Obua, may not be set free soon by the Department of State Security (DSS).

The former CSO is said to have been arrested and placed in the custody of the DSS after being treated in a hospital on Monday for an undisclosed ailment.

Mr. Obua, who was reported to have died in the custody of DSS, was yesterday evening brought in to address the media in Abuja on his state of health.

He said that he was alive and well, adding that nothing untoward was happening to him.

He assured members of his family and the general public, who have expressed serious concerns about his state of health, that he was hale and hearty.

Mr. Obua, who was not allowed to take questions from journalists, added that he remained a member of the DSS and has not been retired as reported.

Rather, he had been called upon to give account of his stewardship as the Chief Security Officer to former President Jonathan.

He was reported to have fainted on Monday after embarking on a hunger strike to protest his detention.

Obua has been on detention since July 16 and was held incommunicado before being produced to address the media yesterday at the DSS Headquarters in Abuja.
