The Department of State Services (DSS) has reportedly arrested Usman Bugaje for criticizing President Muhammadu Buhari’s handling of insecurity across the country.
It was gathered that Bugaje, a politician and scholar, was arrested by the secret police after appearing on AIT.
Sources told Peoples Gazette that Bugaje was arrested by the DSS on Wednesday and currently in their custody as at the time of filling this report.
Recall that the politician added his voice to growing concerns amongst Nigerians about insecurity. He had previously condemned Buhari’s failure to tackle the economy, as well as his sectional appointments.
It was not immediately clear whether the DSS would release Bugaje today. A spokesman for the service did not immediately return a request seeking comments.
Bugaje’s arrest is coming barely a few weeks after the SSS invited then detained Obadiah Mailafia, a former CBN chief who similarly criticised insecurity and accused politicians of being behind the expanding crisis.
