The Actions Of DSS Is An Ominous Sign Of What Lay Ahead Of Nigerians Under Tinubu’s Govt – Igho Akeregha

In the midst of the ongoing public outrage over the re-arrest of suspended Central Bank Governor, Godwin Emefiele, by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) despite having been granted bail by a Federal High Court, veteran journalist and public affairs commentator, Igho Akeregha, has described the incident as a foreshadowing of things to come under the new administration.

Speaking on Africa Independent Television’s ‘Kaakaki’ program on Wednesday, July 26, Akeregha, a member of the Nigerian Guild of Editors, argued that as long as the court had granted bail to Emefiele, the DSS should have rearrested him because doing so would have shown the Tinubu administration’s contempt for the rule of law.

Going further, the veteran journalist lamented that the actions of the nation’s secret police at the Lagos Federal High Court may be a sign of what lay ahead for Nigerians under the government of Bola Tinubu.

He said; “The offense for which Emefiele was arraigned is bailable. And it carries a penalty of five years imprisonment with an option of a fine.

After the court granted him bail, it was no longer the prerogative of the DSS to continue keeping Emefiele in custody. How the DSS mobilized its men to take over the court premises and embarked on that show of shame yesterday, is something that speaks volumes to probably what lay ahead of Nigerians.

My interpretation of what happened yesterday is that it is an ominous sign of what lay ahead for Nigerians in Tinubu’s government. Because, first of all, the DSS itself has failed to come out and explain why they want Emefiele to remain in its custody.

The Presidency has also kept mum regarding what happened in the court premises yesterday, when the DSS operatives assaulted an officer in uniform, and we are here talking about inter-agency cooperation.

President Tinubu himself has also talked about his government being rooted in the rule of law. But where is the rule of law? Why has he kept quiet on this matter?”
