Authorities have arrested Mr Gordon Obua, the Chief Security Officer (CSO) to former President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan during his 6-year tenure as President.
A security source with knowledge of the development said the employee of the State Security Service (SSS) was taken into custody by the secret service on Thursday evening.
A source at the SSS claimed that Obuah’s detention was as a result of an investigation that implicated him in aiding oil bunkering.
Meanwhile, the Society for Global Justice has called on the SSS to release him with immediate effect.
The group in a statement issued by its Executive Director. Mr Marcus Ogabe confirmed that Obua was detained at the SSS headquarters in Abuja since Thursday.
The Group called on Nigerians to take note of the tyranical, autocratic and dictatorship tendency of the Muhammadu Buhari Administration as exemplified by the continued incarceration of the Chief Security Officer to former president Jonathan.
“Obua has been detained since last Thursday at the headquarters of the State Security Services in Abuja without charge.
“He was also not told the reason for which he is being detained, the group said.
