The Department of State Security (DSS) and the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) have joined the police in withdrawing their men attached to the Speaker of the House of Reps Aaminu Waziri Tambuwal, Weekly Trust learnt yesterday.
On Thursday, the Nigeria Police had withdrawn Tambuwal’s security detail following his defection to the All Progressives Congress (APC) from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
A source said: “Early this morning, the SSS and civil defence also withdrew their men. We were with the Speaker all through and saw what happened. He’s now left alone. In fact, it is some men of the Sergeant at Arms that now guard his house.”
Tambuwal had cited the crisis in the Sokoto State chapter of the PDP as his reason for defecting to the APC.
