Shake-up In NSA’s Office As Munguno Sacks Directors Loyal To Dasuki
The National Security Adviser, Babagana Monguno, may have began a shake-up in his office with the sack of directors loyal to the former NSA Sambo Dasuki.
According to report, 12 director loyal to the former NSA from various departments in the office were affected in the sack.
The departments affected include that of behavioural analysis, policy and strategy, internal security, defence affairs, communication, economic intelligence, special duties and counter-terrorism centre, lawful interception, security, administration and finance and presidential communication command and control centre.
“The directors were given until Friday to tender their handover notes,” the official said.
“The NSA may want have a clean slate. You know the former NSA is undergoing trial for illegal possession of firearms. The sacked directors were loyal to him.”
The dismissal of the officers follows the patter of a similar “compulsory retirement” of 45 top directors at the Department of State Services (DSS), including Marilyn Ogar, who was deputy director of public relations of the agency.
Ibrahim Katsina and Abdulrahman Mani, who was recently removed as chief security officer to Buhari; Gordon Obua, chief security officer to Ex-president Goodluck Jonathan; as well as the CSO to Ita Ekpeyong, former director-general of the agency, were also named among the retirees.
