The Director-General, Department of State Services, Mr. Lawal Daura, has said that the service will sustain the clampdown on corrupt public officials and other saboteurs.
In an apparent reference to the ongoing probe of former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.) and crude oil thieves by the DSS, Daura said the agency would be professional, noting that the service under his leadership would be accountable to Nigerians.
Daura, who replaced Ita Ekpeyong a few weeks ago, said this in an interview with Aljazeera TV, monitored by our correspondent on Friday.
The DG said, “Whatever comes before us with facts and figures, it will be dealt with equally as required by the law. The ongoing investigations and clampdown on corrupt persons and saboteurs of the nation’s interests will be sustained.”
Daura assured Nigerians of a more resolute and professional service which he said would attend to valid reports brought before it without prejudice to anybody.
He urged Nigerians to raise their expectations, adding that the secret police were poised to restore the confidence of citizens in the service.
In the less than 30 minutes chat, Daura said, “Nigerians should closely watch and follow what we have started and what we will continue to do. I am sure they will not find us wanting.”
