SSS restores Speaker Tambuwal’s security

Mr. Tambuwal's security vehicles parked Thursday afternoon at his residence after President Jonathan ordered him stripped of state protection.

The State Security Service, SSS, has restored the security detail of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal, months after removing it.

The Nigerian government stripped Mr. Tambuwal of police and SSS security in 2014 after the speaker defected to the opposition All Progressives Congress.

The APC currently holds the majority membership of the House of Representatives, but it is not clear if the reversal of the order followed that development in the House.

When contacted, Mr. Tambuwal’s spokesperson, Imam Imam, confirmed the return of the security officials.

Editor’s Note: This story has been updated to reflect that Mr. Tambuwal’s SSS detail, not Police, was restored. We regret the error.

    SSS or whatever they are called are just a bunch of useless thugs without brains and balls. The Speaker has been surviving without their useless security details protected by ALMIGHTY GOD. I’m sure most of them like the fat slob marlyin ogar never stepped into any four walls of a university.
