Former president, Goodluck Jonathan has warned operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) not to allow politicians to use them against other Nigerians.
Jonathan gave the warning while delivering the Graduation lecture for the participants of Executive Intelligence Management Course (EIMC) 14, 2021 at National Institute for Security Studies (NISS), Abuja, on Thursday.
He said that the DSS operatives must not be used against any citizen while protecting highly placed persons in the country.
He said, “One key thing about managing our economy is that people should have confidence in our institutions. In that case, the institutions must be strong. For example, we are talking about the Department of State Service, the DSS must be strong.
“While they are protecting highly placed persons in the country, they must also protect every citizen in the country, and they must not be used against other Nigerians. In America, you will see their police saying their loyalty is to their country, not to their President.”
The former president also commented on the raid on the residence of Justice Mary Odili, and demanded that those involved should be punished.
KanyiDaily had reported how security operatives made up of the Nigerian Army and police illegally invaded the home of Justice Mary Odili in Abuja.
