Department of State Services (DSS) has revealed that the campaign to rid the agency of bad eggs has paid off following the arrest of two of five of its staff involved in robbery and sharing of N310 million belonging to a bureau de change operator in Abuja last month.
It recovered N66.4 million from the operatives. All the five staff were attached to the National Assembly.
In a statement signed by Tony Opuiyo, the Service listed the names of the suspects as Abdulrasheed Ahmadu Maigari, Solomon Inusa, Peter Okoye, Patrick Ishaya and George Mwatapwa Ibbi, noting that gang leader, Maigari allegedly conspired with four other colleagues to carry out the nefarious activity.
Stressing that the DSS action was in line with the President Muhammadu Buhari administration’s zero tolerance for corruption and management’s focus on professionalism, transparency and accountability, the agency pleaded with the public with useful information on the fleeing staff.
