The Director-General of the Department of State Services (DSS), Yusuf Bichi, says most politicians, particularly state governors in Nigeria, do not trust security officials and would rather go to spiritualists and native doctors for protection.
Naija News reports that the DSS DG made this comment at the retreat for incoming governors organised by the Nigerian Governors Forum (NGF) which held in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital on Monday, April 29.
His words: “I joke with politicians that you people trust the marabouts and Babalawos more. Once someone tells you nothing will happen to your seat and it happens, you just trust that person in all crisis.” he said
Bichi said there was no lack of Intelligence in the country but rather a lack of will to combat the security challenges.
The DSS DG said some of the security challenges in Nigeria is as a result of many politicians’ distrust of security officials.
