The Department of State Security Services, DSS, has denied killing a Presidential Security Intruder, who charged at President Muhammadu Buhari, during the Argungu festival, in Kebbi State.
The DSS, in a statement signed by its Spokesperson, Peter Afunaya, said that Mohammad Jammil Guddare, was only denied an unauthorised handshake and embrace with Buhari.
“The futile attempt to have an unauthorised handshake with the President, thus breaching Security Protocols. He was stopped by Security details, and arrested for thorough investigation.”
The DSS said that its preliminary investigation revealed that Guddare is not a hostile person, but an overzealous enthusiast of the President.
“The Service has reviewed the video of the incident, and is taking measures against its personnel found to have been negligent in their duties.”
