Nigeria – The Aso villa authorities have rejected 253 Department of State Services (DSS) security operatives transferred to protect the presidency, PUNCH reports.
The men had been redeployed from several areas of the federation to work with the presidency but were rejected on getting to Asorock.
According to their redeployment signals that emanated from the service’s National Headquarters, the officers were directed to report at the Presidential Villa last week Monday.
However, the officials, armed with signals showing specifically where they would man in the Presidential Villa, were however turned back on arrival.
They were said to have been directed to ensure that they return to their respective former duty posts across the country the following day (last week Tuesday).
One of the affected officials, who was transferred from one of the states in the South-West, complained that all of them were left to their fate without any transfer allowance.
He said only one of them wasn’t rejected.
