Former governor of Benue State, Gabriel Suswam has been arrested by the Department of State Services (DSS), a statement by the agency said.

According to the DSS, it received intelligence that some incriminating items were stashed in the boots of cars parked at a property allegedly belonging to the former governor at number 44 Aguiyi Ironsi Way, Maitama-Abuja.

The statement signed by DSS spokesman, Tony Opuiyo said that the raid was carried out with two private security officers present

Tfollowing items were recovered:

  • A glock pistol with two magazines and a total of 29 rounds of ammunition;
  • A mini-uzi with two magazines containing 10 rounds and four rounds respectively;
  • Forty-two extra rounds of ammunition contained in a pack and one Ak-47.
  • Twenty-one Certificates of Occupancy and one Offer of Statutory Right of Occupancy;
  • Twenty-three luxury designer watches; and
  • Forty-five keys to various exotic cars.

The DSS also warned against inciting comments.

“It is in the light of this latest development that the Service wishes to sound a note of warning to persons and groups that it will no longer tolerate any acts of lawlessness by those who ought to be law abiding and responsible citizens.

The Service has also observed with total dismay, the inciting utterances of some political actors whose activities heat-up the polity.

It also wishes to express its disappointment with these politicians who in their desperation, are engaged in hate speeches and sponsor of radio campaign jingles when the electoral umpire has not authorised such campaigns in line with the Electoral Act.

More worrisome is the unpatriotic involvement of some media outfits in these divisive tendencies which negate their constitutional role as the fourth estate of the realm.

In line with its statutory mandate of maintaining the peace and internal security of the country, the Service hereby restates its commitment to go after anyone no matter how highly placed. who engages in acts capable of causing the breach of peace in the country,” the statement said.

      I’m with you here. What were the incriminating items? The report didn’t state what was incriminating or illegal about the items found.
