The Nigerian Bar Association has ordered for immedaite suspension of DSS Director General Yusuf Nisi, over the choes they created with the rearrest of the leader of RevolutuonNow, Sowore.
The NBA sees the style the DSS used as thuggery and insane passion for lawlessness and a total disregard for rule of law. The body also beloved that the DSS under the Leadership of Yusuf Bisi has lost its purpose
In a statement issued by NBA National publicity Secretary, Kunle Edun, condemns the act of DSS and urges all Nigerians to be alive to their responsibilites as citizens.
The system further reads:
The Nigerian Bar Association strongly condemns the action of the Department of State Security, which is another in the series of impunity and lawlessness exhibited by the DSS. The invasion of the court by the agency of the Federal Government of Nigeria runs contrary to the avowed assurances of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria that he will ensure that the Federal Government and agencies under it obey court orders.
“The NBA urges all Nigerians to be alive to their responsibilities as citizens of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and is ready to partner with all Nigerians and civil society organisations to ensure that the rights of Nigerians as guaranteed by Chapter 4 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 as amended are not trampled upon by any agency of government. The NBA therefore, demands as follows:
“1. That the Federal Government of Nigeria and the National Assembly immediately investigate the shameful conduct by the DSS and ensure that all persons found culpable are duly punished in accordance with the law.
“2. The immediate suspension of the Director-General of the Department of State Security from office. We make this demand bearing in mind the fact that the DSS under his leadership has established itself as a brutish and irresponsible agency that derives immense pleasure from violating the fundamental rights of Nigerians and disrespecting court orders.
