DSS officer who detained whistleblower at accused’s call dies in auto crash
An officer of the Department of State Security (DSS), Bashiru Ismaila has died in a ghastly auto crash in Abuja.
Ismaila, for the records, allegedly ordered the arrest and detention of a whistleblower, Dr. George Uboh, and freed the accused person after extorting a humongous amount from him.
According to an inside source, the DSS officer detailed agents to the home of Dr. Uboh, the chairman of George Uboh Whistleblower Network (GUWN) with express orders to shoot him.
Incidentally, Uboh was not at home when they struck but they still fired shots, destroyed properties and carted away any and every electronic and security gadget in the house.
When Uboh later turned himself in and confronted him, he denied that it was not the DSS who shot bullets in the house, rather, that it was Uboh’s security armed men who shot.
He will later confess after his release that it was his men that shot the bullets.
He was involved in a ghastly accident on Sunday, September 12, 2021.
His vehicle was submerged in water and he died at the spot.
When contacted for his reaction to the death of Bashiru Ismaila, Dr. Uboh said in few words:
“Detaining a whistleblower on orders from the person against whom the whistle is blown is a grave sin.
“I hope he reconciles with Almighty God.”
