DSS Releases Jonathan’s CSO, Gordon Obuah


By Tosin Omoniyi

The Department of State Security, DSS, on Tuesday night released Gordon Obuah, the chief security officer, CSO, to former President Goodluck Jonathan after 6 days in detention.

Security sources said that Obuah was allowed to reunite with his family after being debriefed by operatives of the security agency.



    Obuah, a serving officer of the DSS, had been in the news lately over his detention and purported death in the hands of the DSS while undergoing interrogation.

    However, Obuah, on Tuesday appeared before newsmen, where he debunked claims that he had been killed while in detention.

    He said he had only been invited by his superiors to give an accurate account of his stewardship while working with the former president and expressed happiness at the way he had been treated by his colleagues while in their custody.

    “Nigerians should be assured that the Department of State Service is a very responsible organization and I believe that nothing adverse will be done to my person if I have not done anything wrong,” he said.
