DSS Operatives Storms Its Former DG, Kayode Areh’s Home In Lagos
Operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) have stormed the Ikoyi, Lagos, home of Kayode Areh, retired colonel and former director-general of the secret police, and thrown out his belongings.
The operatives reportedly stormed the residence in two buses around 3pm on Wednesday, breaking down the doors and throwing out his belongings.
A member of the household said the operatives did not produce any legal document to back up their action.
Areh, who was DG of the DSS from 1999 to 2007 under President Olusegun Obasanjo, had been asked to quit the house by the new head of the agency, Lawal Daura, but was given till December 31, 2015 to do so.
However, It was gathered that he got a court order to restrain the DSS from forcefully ejecting him. This, it is believed, might have led to the DSS action.
