DSS Seizes Sacked NNPC GMD, Ged’s Passports by lekanolas: 7:59am On Aug 10, 2015
The Department of State Security Services (DSS )has seized the passports of the sacked Group Managing Director (GMD) of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) Dr. Joseph Dawha, and eight other Group Executives Directors, GEDs who were equally relieved of their appointments.

Their passports were seized because of security reasons.

The move is to stop them from interfering in the ongoing probe in the oil sector, especially the controversial crude oil swap

The DSS and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is currently investigating the roles played by the sacked NNPC officials in the crude oil swap and sundry dealings in the corporation.

Their cases also bother on allegations bordering on abuse of office, under handing oil dealings in the NNPC

Dawha was sacked on Monday by the federal government while the eight GEDs were relieved of their appointments a day after.

very soon, very very soon....the DSS will start mounting road blocks collecting egunje like police. By the time the daura man is done with DSS, they will start asking for particulars from motorist. Allow Efcc and the moribund ICPC do their work. The DSS should be busy investigating the sponsors of boko haram, their source of funding and not corruption cases. well, since i didnt shout SAI BUHARI....expect them to shout wailing wailers. zombies

There should be a standard template that should form the core policy in the fight against corruption! What we are seeing with this petty minded government is a haphazard dramatisation of the fight against corruption. . Today Dasukis home is invaded and nothing tangible comes out of it other than a press statement by an overzealous DSS. Then Oshiohmole regales us with some earth shaking revelations on corruption, then Danjuma visits , then Obasanjo visits, then passports of so, so and so officials are seized and then released. . . The whole thing looks so disorganised and badly orchestrated to serve APCs interests. . . How it is done?. Inuagurate an impartial body of honest men and order them to investigate, probe, arrest and prosecute ALL corrupt men, irrespective of party, religious or tribal affliation. That's the way to go. There must be a generally acceptable standard to be followed. Buhari should NOT be allowed to be making up the rules as he goes. . Is this a president or an emperor?? .

Nigeria and ancient practice - always seizing passports. Where were these authorities when funds were allegedly being stolen or was the GMD of NNPC also enjoying immunity like our governors?

If all this is bn done in a 2 Month Govt,and if sustained, it is a pointer to where we are heading! If only GEJ was an inch close to bn an emperor, then we wl b enjoyin the luxury of having a President now but sinc the former wasnt any lets make do with the one we have.

I dare say if havin an "emperor" will get us out of the pit we are in now, then that is the way to go!

if only you know me, i dont respond to quotes. i just decided to open your blocked head aand i know you wont have any other thing to say apart from insult. for your information, no security agency is empowered by the law to seize passport of citizens under investigation except a court of law. until proven guilty you are presumed innocent and if they feel you can run away, they will arrest you and take you to court. as part of your bail bond, the court can then order the appropriate security outfit to impound your passport. fool like you is talking about IQ

Looks like you expected the news source to publish the judge that granted the warrant, the time and date they got the warrant, even the type of shirt the judge was wearing etc.

dont be a zombie. i am telling you DSS is not empowered by law do it. He provided a link to what? so whatever DSS writes on its website is correct. do you know there is a law establishing DSS. please provide me a link to the code that empowers DSS to seize passports. and even if DSS is empowered to seize passports of people under their investigation, why should they be investigating somebody that committed financial crime? What then is the job of the EFCC? i used to think you apc guys were intelligent. i can now see you no nothing more than SAI BUHARI...such a shame. And for your information, court documents are public property. if it is the court that orders the seizure, it is no longer DSS but the court so i am still saying DSS cant seize passports. Moreso the court rarely orders seizure of passport for somebody under investigation because it constitute a serious infringement on their fundamental right to free movement

Are we even sure this news is real?. Wait till tomorrow and you'll read here on this same forum that "DSS deny seizing passport of sacked NNPC officials".

You see, what's going on is a massive propaganda to give the impression something is happening, when in reality there's no single war on corruption going on.

How many billions have been recovered yet?. Zero.

Until I see an official admitting in court or being convicted for corruption, all this news is nothing but propaganda.
