Gordon Obua, former Chief Security Officer to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan has been released by the Department of State Services. HOMELAND NEWS can report
Mr. Obua who was arrested and detained on Thursday by the DSS was released around 10pm on Tuesday.
No specific reason was given for his arrest but speculations were rife that it may not be unconnected with the siege on the residence of the former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki by operatives of the DSS from Thursday to Friday last week.
Earlier on Tuesday, online sources, not HOMELAND NEWS reported that Mr. Obua died in custody after collapsing. But later in the day, the former CSO was presented to the media by the DSS, at the Headquarters of the Services where he said the operatives have been friendly and kind to his and exonerated DSS from all allegations of inhuman treatments.
An unofficial source told HOMELAND NEWS that Mr. Obua was invited for questioning when it was discovered that his service pistol was missing from the time he returned from the assignment at the Presidency. The source said the DSS does not take kindly to such incidents.
These will remain mere speculations until the DSS makes open its mission if it will ever do.
