DSS Issues Press Release On Court Premises Drama Between Its Operatives And NCoS sTAFF

The Department of State Services on Wednesday July 26, 2023 issued a press release on the drama that ensued at the court premises between its operatives and officials of the Nigerian Correctional Service (NCoS) over suspended Central Bank of Nigeria governor Godwin Emefiele...


 The public will recall that Mr Godwin Emefiele, suspended CBN Governor, was arraigned at the Federal High Court, Ikoyi, Lagos, on 25th July, 2023. The Service has noted the incident that took place between its staff and those of the Nigerian Correctional Service (NCoS) and wish to state as follows:

 i. The incident was unfortunate and does not in any way reflect the professional disposition of the DSS; 

ii. The Service did not and would never encourage the incident under reference;

 iii. The Service has tremendous respect for the Judiciary as an Arm and Institution of Government and will not go out of its way to undermine it. The DSS recognises the Judiciary as a critical component in nation building, national development and security management. Also, the Service has robust working relationship with sister Security and Law Enforcement agencies including the NCoS;

 iv. While noting that the personnel from both Agencies exhibited undue overzealousness, the Service has further initiated detailed investigations into the matter. This is with a view to identifying the role played by specific persons as well as undertaking disciplinary actions if necessary and drawing some lessons going forward. For emphasis, the DSS has not broken any laws in handling the Emefiele Case despite efforts by some elements to skew the narratives to the contrary. 

The Service had since alerted the public of sinister plots to discredit its leadership. In pursuit of its assignments, it will strive to remain professional, maintain ethical standards and high sense of discipline. The Service will ensure that it will not be used for clout and fame chasing or delusional heroism. 

It will, however, remain focused on its national security mandate and, therefore, enjoin well-meaning Nigerians to support it in achieving the desired security goals for the nation. It is imperative to note that we have no other country but Nigeria. We should join hands, with love and tolerance, to build it.''

    1. I follow you my sister. Mtcheeeeeeeeeeeew

  2. Absolute trash.....

    You guys have succeeded in making mockery of the nation and one of it top most security outfit.

  3. No need for this shalaye! You guys have already desecrated that institution. Any high-profile cases always meet drama and clashes between you, Correctional centre officials. You have no regard for the rule of law and the office that you hold.

    Always in the news for the wrong reasons. Thumbs down 👎👎👎👎

  4. Una too dey worry..The citizens are not even bothered about you people anymore..

  5. Bring back the old DSS who are only heard of but never seen. In those days, even a wife does not know her husband works with DSS.

  6. Shameless lots.

  7. Una daddy left yansh there..

    Which nonsense investigation..
    Any yes you have broken so many laws..

    After being granted bail, is it not the prison he was supposed to be moved to until his bail is perfected? What are you re-arresting him for again? On what charge?

    All of Una dey craze.. but e no concern me, Emefiele should enjoy the evil he supported..
    Look at other politicians also keeping quiet cos they feel they're punishing Godwin while disrespecting the judiciary, until they're faced with similar situation and they run to the judiciary to rescue them, that's when they'll start crying cos you don't expect something you killed to act like it's living..


    I so miss Ceaser mahn🤦

  8. Shame Shame Shame Shame!
    There was a country!

  9. DSS the big B U L L Y

  10. There is more to this fight than meets the ordinary eyes.
    We know and they know that we know. But this is Nigeria so who cares?

  11. Abeg So who won the fight? Who later took custody of Emiefele?

  12. Oh really, So why did you agency disgrace themselves? , The deed is done, the shame is yours.
    Emefiele Ntoor gi.

  13. Growing up, I heard about CID, Secret police officers but never seen. It will be a big news if you hear that CID came to arrest someone, it means that the person is a criminal who has been investigated by the agency before pick up. The presence of the police agent send chills and murmur round the community.

    Present day Nigeria 🇳🇬. Politicians has corrupted sacred institutions. Everything is upside-down 🙃. What you are taught in school seems like a mirage in a foreign country.

    Everyone is a law unto itself. Boundary wall has been broken and serpent has taken over..
