SSS Allegedly Used Israeli Company To Plant Spy Bugs All Over Aso Villa
There have been reports in the media that President Muhammadu Buhari is angry with the Department of State Security Service (DSS).
This may have been demonstrated by the rejection of 253 DSS operatives sent to the villa last week on the orders of the President who reportedly said he does not want the agency’s personnel around him.
While the reports said the president’s anger with the DSS may have stemmed from the agency’s “various negative security reports it wrote against him during his struggle to become the President, including the report on the recent certificate saga,” there is a an indication that there is more to it.
According to a source, President Buhari’s smart security detail discovered that the DSS had planted bugs throughout the villa using an Israeli security company., but did not state when this was done.
This the source said is partly the reason why President Buhari is yet to move into the villa aside the renovation work that is been carried out until it is completely scanned and cleared of spying devices.
But another source said the spy bug planted around the villa were part of security measures put in place by former president Goodluck Jonathan to secure the villa and wondered why that should be an issue.
He said the bugs have been fixed long ago, but did not state exactly when.
the former president has been rumoured to have hired Israeli security experts to provide security at the presidential villa. There are also confirmed reports that the president had engaged Israeli security companies to provide certain level of security checks in the country. One of such companies is Elbit Systems, hired to tap internet communications of Nigeria which the Federal Government said is to check the communications between members of terrorists groups.
The earlier source however said it is not surprising that the DG SSS has refused to comply with presidential directive to
supply the presidency with the list of SSS officers that will be working there for screening, a reason the 253
SSS officers sent to the presidency on Wednesday last week were promptly turned away.
The source has said more shocking details on this development will be made available in the coming
