DSS Is Not Empowered By Law To Arrest – Afe Babalola


Afe Babalola, a renowned legal practitioner made a shocking claim of
‘DSS not being empowered by the law to arrest’ while appearing as a
guest on Channels Television’s News Night. 

The Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) alleged that the DSS’
constitutional job description is to gather information that might
threaten the sovereignty of the nation, which they relay to the
President. 

He made the disclosure while querying President Buhari over the raid
of judges’ homes carried out by DSS operatives in 2016. Recall that
while the Secret Police blamed the raid on receiving intelligence that
some judges stashed large sums of currencies in their homes, it led to
an outcry from various corners. 

Afe Babalola who maintained that the law outlined ways to deal with
erring judges, added that the raid created fear in some judges from
delivering judgement without fear or favour.

“The DSS duty in law is merely to gather information and give it to
the President and all that. They are not to arrest,” he said.

“There are rules, laws of dealing with judges when they commit an offence. That has not been followed,” he added.
