A group, National Patriots Forum, has expressed dismay over what it described as “the unprofessional, despicable, barbaric and shameful conduct of the Department of State Services (DSS), in an attempt to forcefully enter the house of the immediate past Acting Director General of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Ambassador Muhammed Dauda.”

Operatives of the DSS stormed the residence of Ambassador Dauda at No 3, Osaro Laneane, off Osaro Close, Maitama, Abuja, on Monday evening with a directive to forcefully evict him.

A statement signed by Comrade Isa Tijjani, the National President of the Forum, noted that the ugly scenario has further put to disrepute the mercenary action of the DSS, which has the penchant of putting the President and his government to ridicule.

“It is now evidently clear that these actions may not be unconnected with damning revelations of the corrupt tendencies and attempts to siphon and steal monies in the care of the NIA as revealed in a memo to the House Committee on intelligence by the immediate past DG.

“This affront on a sister agency by another goes to tell how inter agency rivalry has gone pretty awry in the conduct of intelligence overview in our country.

“It is worthy of note that even his predecessor, Ambassador Ayo Oke, who was relieved from the position of the DG of the NIA enjoys the comfort of staying in his official residence till now, making one to wonder what could have been the excuse for such an archaic method of intimidation with the aim of stifling the truth from the public.

“In the light of the foregoing, we want Nigerians and indeed the President to note and know that the life and safety of Ambassador Muhammad Dauda squarely rests on the President and his apparatus of state, more over the National Assembly should take note of the ugly dimension, twist and ensure a comprehensive investigation that would be made public for the consumption of all Nigerians.

“Lastly, we want to make it abundantly clear that we will follow this situation to a logical conclusion and ensure that justice is not only seen to be done but done in all ramifications,” the statement reads further.
