“After over one year of sorrows, pains and false hope, The DSS has finally alerted the families of missing DSS officers that their loved ones ‘died’ as heroes in the line of duty. On Saturday, 29th of October, The DSS gave each of the families 250,000 as their own contribution for their burial… When we asked about their bodies, they told us that they can’t locate their bodies.
“The minister of information once said that most Nigerians spend up to 100,000 on a bottle of Champagne. So I ask, if the lives of these ‘fallen’ heroes as they said, is worth only about two bottles of Champagne?
“I’m making a case not only for my brother but for all the security personnel who put their lives in harm’s way for the sake of this nation. While some people are paid to loot our money, those people who put their lives on the line are treated as.They say what goes around comes around, hence, as we continue to wallow in our pains, we thank President Buhari and the DSS as we lay this on the table of God Almighty!
God bless Nigeria!
