“We Will Be Accountable To Nigerians” – DSS DG, Lawal Daura Talks Tough, Vows To Clampdown On Saboteurs


The Director General of State Security Services, Lawal Musa Daura, in a rare chat with Aljazeera TV, monitored by our correspondent on Friday, has assured Nigerians of a more resolute and professional service which will attend to valid reports brought before it without prejudice to anybody.

“Whatever comes before us with facts and figures, it will be dealt with equally as required by the law. Daura said.

Undistracted by the recent campaigns, the DG of Nigeria’s secret police noted that the service will be accountable to the Nigerian citizenry urging them to raise their expectations while affirming that ongoing investigations and clampdown on corrupt persons and saboteurs of the nation’s interests will be sustained.

In the less than 30 minutes chat, Daura who since assumption of office has clamped down on alleged corrupt individuals and organisations added that, “Nigerians should closely watch and follow what we have started and what we will continue to do. I am sure they will not find us wanting.” 

The Department of State Security under the new leadership is poised to restore the confidence of citizens in the service, which has an all-encompassing mandate to protect the interest of the Nation.
