A former assistant director in the Department of State Services (DSS), Dennis Amachree, has opened up on who sponsored the thugs that recently attacked #End SARS protesters in Abuja.
GWG recalls that a video emerged where men in black suits were seen in a sports utility vehicle (SUV) picking up thugs and ushering them to protest venues.
The video which was shot along Adetokunbo Ademola Crescent in Wuse 2 in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) made many to believe that the men were officials of DSS.
However, Amachree while speaking on Sunrise Daily, a Channels Television programme stated that he had information from the DSS headquarters that the men who brought the thugs were working for a senator.
“I don’t want to follow the style of the army where they said people can buy uniforms and wear them and come out. If you wear a dark suit and tie and drive a black SUV, many people would say that is the DSS but I actually inquired about that,” he said.
“I called the headquarters to find out. Those people were working for a particular senator. And if that is the case, I think they should (arrest them). If anybody tries to impersonate security personnel, he should be arrested immediately.
“Don’t allow it to happen and then you go ahead and then do inquiries or panels or whatever.
“I know a lot of people impersonating SSS, taking letters to different places have been arrested and they have been dealt with immediately. Those people you are referring to were not SSS officials.”
