Press release:

The Concerned Northern Forum have expressed growing concern over what they referred to as defiance of court order by the Department of State Services.

This is contained in a statement signed by the Chairman of the forum, Mohammed Danlami and made available to newsmen.

Mohammed Danlami further stated that we are genuinely worried and concerned that a security agency as crucial and central to our nation’s security and safety is refusing to listen to the court orders. The ideal situation is to find that the DSS are a friend of the court and are working hand in hand to maintain law and order, but the contrary is what is obtained in this case.

We have a leadership of the service that has refused to obey court orders, it has continued to keep people in detention even when the court judgement says otherwise. Nnamdi Kanu, Godwin Emefiele, Abdulrasheed Bawa, Aminu Yaro Dogara are a few examples of such. This is direct defiance of court order. This must not continue and cannot be tolerated

The DSS is failing in providing synergy between the security agencies that’s why the security situations in the country is going from bad to worse.

The poor supply of intelligence has led to the failure of taming the various security challenges the country is bedeviled with. The DSS that is supposed to be top on chain of intelligence supply has lost its credibility, value under Bichi and is acting as if it’s not a secret service but regular Police. They use the social media than even ordinary Nigerians.The DSS have almost lost it’s asset of been secretive and it’s now domesticated to the knowledge of the public. This has contributed to the deterioration of security.

We fear and consequently caution President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to act now or face a security situation even worst than that of his predecessor. Frankly speaking, you cannot have as the head of your top security agency a man that cannot keep his family in check, age is really clamping down on him and he needs to rest. The job is tedious, very hectic rough and demanding, and therefore requires a younger, more active, agile and vibrant fellow.

With the way and manner,the DSS boss is determined to keep his job under this new administration, Nigerians will not be shock if we wake up one day and read DSS ARREST FORMER PRESIDENT BUHARI

For a better Nigeria and to keep to the promise of renewed hope, we appeal to President Tinubu to sack the DG DSS, Yusuf Magaji Bichi CFR fwc because DSS under him is nothing to write home about and advisably implement a total overhaul on the Department of State Services.
