The State Security Service, SSS, on Tuesday, June 5, 2018, partially returned some of its operatives who were withdrawn from Bukola Saraki, the Senate President.

The secret police reportedly withdrew nearly two-thirds of personal security guards attached to Saraki and the remaining three presiding officers at the National Assembly on Saturday, Premium Times reports.

Over a dozen officers were withdrawn from Mr. Saraki’s detail alone. But five of them have now been restored, according to sources close to the Senate President.

Details of the development were still murky as at the time of this report.

It was not immediately clear whether the personnel withdrawn from Speaker Yakubu Dogara, Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu and Deputy Speaker Yusuf Lasun have been partially or fully restored alongside Mr Saraki’s.
