Buhari removes CSO
Posted on: July 04, 2015, 11:23:26 PM

The Chief Security Officer to President Muhammadu Buhari,   Abdulrahman Mani, has been relieved of his appointment, a month after he was appointed.

His sack may not be unconnected with the battle between the Directorate of State Security, DSS, and the Nigerian Army over which agency should  provide close body protection for the president, a role that has traditionally been carried out by the DSS.

He has been replaced by an officer of the DSS.

Since Buhari moved into the Presidential Villa, there has been a battle between the DSS and the Army over who should provide close body protection for the president.

The crisis came to a head when the ADC, an  army lieutenant, ordered DSS operatives  out of the Villa and replaced them with  soldiers.

A source at the Villa  familiar with the matter told Sunday Vanguard that the new CSO  is a more senior officer than the officer who was removed.
