Seiyefa

True to predictions, President Muhammadu Buhari has sacked Mathew Seiyefa, Acting Director of the Department of State Services (DSS), who took over from Lawan Daura, who was sacked by Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, as an Acting President, while the President was away on a 10-day leave in the UK.

A statement by the President’s spokesman, Garuba Shehu, announcing the development, said the President, had approved with effect from the 14th of September, the appointment of Yusuf Magaji Bichi (fwc), as new DSS boss.

The statement which was mute on the fate of Seiyefa, who hails from Bayelsa State, and is said to be due retirement next year, described the Bichi as “a core Secret Service operative.”

The statement read further: “He attended Danbatta Secondary School, the Kano State College of Advanced Studies and the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria where he graduated with a degree in Political Science.

“The new Director-General began his career in the security division of the Cabinet Office in Kano, from where he joined the defunct Nigerian Security Organisation (NSO), the precursor of the present DSS.

“Mr.  Bichi has undergone training in intelligence processing analysis, agent handling recruitment and intelligence processing in the UK, as well as strategic training at the National Defence College.

“The new DSS boss comes to the job with skills in intelligence gathering, research analysis, conflict management, general investigation, risk and vulnerability operations, counter intelligence and protective operation and human resources management.

“In the course of his career, Mr. Bichi has worked as the State Director of Security in Jigawa, Niger, Sokoto and Abia States.

“He was at various times the Director, National Assembly Liaison, (National War College), Director at National Headquarters in the Directorate of Security Enforcement, Directorate of Operations, Directorate of Intelligence, Directorate of Inspection and Directorate of Administration and Finance.

“He also served as Director at State Service Academy. Mr Bichi is married and with children.”
