Jonathan’s CSO Nabbed by SSS Over Scam, Embarks On Hunger StrikeFeatured, Latest News, News Saturday, July 18th, 2015
By Ganiyu Nasirudeen – The Chief Security Officer (CSO) to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Mr. Gordon Obua has been arrested and held by the State Security Service (SSS).
Obua, it was learnt was nabbed in connection with his misconducts, including movement of the huge security sum and oil theft, which occurred during the immediate past administration.
AFRICAN EXAMINER gathered that Obua who was picked last Thursday has allegedly been prevented from meeting with members of his family and his Lawyers. The situation it was learnt did not go down well with the suspect, hence embarked on hunger strike.
The senior SSS officer was appointed in 2010 and was automatically relieved of his position immediately after the incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari’s inauguration Friday, May 29, 2015.
It would be recalled similar fate has befallen the former National Security Adviser (NSA), to former President Jonathan, Sambo Dasuki, as he was Friday summoned and detained by the SSS operatives, for questioning over many security spending fraught with many alleged illegality.
