‘All Eyes On Judiciary’: Nigerians React To DSS, Emefiele Saga

DSS, Emefiele Saga ‘All Eyes on Judiciary’

Mixed reactions have continued to trail the recent drama between embattled CBN governor Godwin Emefiele and the Department of State Services (DSS).

In a recent video making the rounds on social media, DSS officials were seen manhandling an official of the Nigerian Correctional Service(NCS).

Drama started in front of the Nicholas Oweibo courtroom when members of the DSS reportedly denied the NCS permission of taking Emefiele with them as directed by the court after the latter was granted bail.

Reacting, Nigerians took to social media to express their concerns about the issue.

George Emefiele, brother to the ousted CBN governor, said, “It is unfortunate that this is happening in Nigeria, a democratic nation. A nation that is blessed with people with integrity, I remember very well when I was in secondary school, the NADECO period, I knew how the current president fought the military through NADECO, he fought tooth and nail, he fought the military telling the military to obey the rules and regulations of the constitutional law, here we are today, three courts have said release him on bail, he is not running away for God’s sake, he has served this nation for nine years, where is he going to go to? All his life is in Nigeria here, and you can imagine a situation where two federal military apparatus are fighting themselves, manhandling the commander of the prison, it is a disgrace to this nation, it is a complete disgrace.”

@Onlineguru_ : “This is what you get when you have an Agbero as your president.”

@rilwan_ola01: “Another staged drama between the DSS and NCS to distract Nigerians from

1 . Atiku’s powerful written address

2 . inec’s revelation that atiku won 21 states

3. Obi’s powerful written address

4 . APM’s case on Shettima’s double Nomination that will 💯 disqualified the ticket of APC

I refused to be distracted, I remain focused

All eyes on the judiciary.”

@firstladyship: “The DSS & prison officials fought over who was going to take Emefiele into custody. This is Nigeria; the subscription you paid for. ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED? 👏👏.”

@itzlaramiles: “When Donald Trump was arrested, did you see FBI & CIA fighting over custody? But in Nigeria, The DSS in a most Disgraceful act, were fighting with Prison Officials over custody of a Godwin Emefiele the court had already granted bail. Isn’t this Shameful? All under the Tinubu era.”

@Generalbuj: “Nigeria is now a lawless country , for God sake what is going on . A court of competent jurisdiction has given its verdict for Emefiele to be granted bail of 20m naira and remanded in Ikoyi prison until the demands are met . But the DSS right in front of the court is disobeying..”

@Sports_Doctor2: “Now the DSS is supposed to be like the FBI of the United States, the MI6 of the United Kingdom. What’s the DSS main job? – Detection and prevention of crime, just like the FBI and MI6 but in Nigeria, they’re bodyguards and a toy for hire for whoever is in charge. It’s a shame what this department has turned into, a very big shame.”
