A Former Chief Security Officer to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Godwin Obuah, is dead.
He died on Thursday night.
Details of what led to his death were sketchy, but The Nation gathered that the late Obuah died at the National Hospital in Abuja, after suffering heart attack.
The late Obuah was arrested and detained by the Department of State Services (DSS) on corruption charges in July 2015, two months after Jonathan left office.
Obuah was accused of benefiting from an oil deal, an allegation he denied but the panel which investigated him was dissatisfied with his explanation and recommended his dismissal from the DSS.
He was later dismissed from service.
The deceased protested his detention by going on hunger strike and fell ill after he was released from detention.
