DSS to review cases of rights abuse and illegal detention, says new acting DG

Department of Security Service (DSS), has promised to review cases of unlawful detention and human rights abuses attributed to it.

The agency’s new acting Director General, Matthew Seiyefa, also said cases of disobedience of court’s orders will be reviewed.

Seiyefa, who announced the new moves at a news conference in Abuja, promised to correct the wrongdoings of the past, and reposition DSS, in line with best global practices.

He explained that he was yet to be briefed on the case of the former national security adviser, Sambo Dasuki, who had been in detention since late 2015.

Sieyefa, who took over the leadership of DSS, following the sack of Lawal Daura on Monday, also said he will not allow the political atmosphere to influence the operations of DSS, and will not allow himself to be intimidated.
