History of Department of State Services (DSS)
Many Nigerians are yet to know the functions of the Department of State Services (DSS). They can’t even say if there is any difference between DSS and SSS. If you find yourself in this category, don’t feel bad as we’re set to reveal everything you need to know about DSS.
Former military president of Nigeria Ibrahim Babangida, in June 1986, dissolved the National Security Organization (NSO) as part of his promises to provide topnotch security in the country.
Dissolving NSO gave birth to three security entities in the country, and SSS (STATE SECURITY SERVICES) was one of them. We can authoritatively tell you that SSS (DSS) has been in existence for over 36 years. They were officially established on the 5th of June 1986, by the same president, during the military era.
Thousands of powerful men have been hired into the special intelligent police force and more are expected to be hired before the end of the year.
The Difference between DSS And SSS
Don’t be deceived by the name, DSS is just a slight changes in the name. The police force were initially known as SSS but the name was ‘illegally’ changed to DSS in 2011 during Ita Ekpeyong’s reign as the director General of the SSS.
The term ‘illegal’ is used because the sudden change of name wasn’t legally supported by the county’s constitution. Click HERE for more understanding.
Functions Of The DSS
Though the major and notable function of the strong police force is to provide tight security for top politicians in the country, DSS equally carry out other duties such as:
- They protect and defend the citizens of the country against internal war or social unrest.
- They ensure that criminal laws are strongly enforced.
- They provide massive security to lawmakers in the country.
- They are occasionally deployed as anti-terrorism squad in case of security emergencies.
