President Bola Ahmed Tinubu any time from now, may announce the appointment of a former Chief Security Officer to ex-president Sani Abacha, Hamza Al-Mustapha as the Director General, Department of State Service (DSS).
Hamza Al-Mustapha is a former Nigerian Army major and intelligence officer who served as Chief Security Officer to General Sani Abacha, who was Nigeria's military head of state from 1993 until his sudden death on 8 June 1998.
Although this development is yet to be ascertained but the source claims it is near the end of the tunnel.
From August 1985 to August 1990, Al-Mustapha was Aide-de-camp (ADC) (but recently clarified in an open television interview with Channels Television's Seun Okinbaloye that he wasn't ADC that he was the Chief Security Officer) to Chief of Army Staff, General Sani Abacha. Both his principal and Head of State, General Ibrahim Babangida had absolute confidence in his abilities, and entrusted him with exceptional powers, considerably greater than other officers who were nominally his superior. This further projected him as a strongman of the military hierarchy.
