After attempts to arrest him by operatives of the State Security Service (SSS) proved abortive, the former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nasir el-Rufai has finally appeared at the headquarters of the security agency.

Mallam el-Rufai turned himself in and was accompanied by Governor of Rivers, Rotimi Amaechi and Senator Chris Ngige.

The former minister was summoned by the SSS due to some statements he made which the agency described as ‘inciting’.

According to Sahara Reporters:

Today Mr. el-Rufai was accompanied to the “Yellow House” headquarters of the SSS about 9:20 am in the company of his lawyer, Bamidele Aturu, Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi, Senator Chris Ngige and a few family members.

The SSS operatives did not permit Governor Amaechi, Ngige and El-Rufai family members to enter their premises.

The operatives of SSS last Friday invaded the house of the former minister to arrest him following his refusal to honor the invitation by the headquarters of the Service.

However, El-Rufai condemned the raid and said he ignored the SSS’s invitation because it was not backed by a valid arrest warrant.

The situation forced the service to obtained a warrant arrest as confirmed by the SSS spokesperson, Ms. Marilyn Ogar. The SSS later accused El-Rufai of hiding, but promised to arrest him.

Ms. Ogar boasted last week , saying, “Let me promise you one thing, we will arrest him. He can not continue to incite members of the public, causing trouble, and expect to go scot free. No, Nigerian, no individual is greater that the country.

“Mallam El-Rufai must be made to answer for his provocative and inflammatory statement. I say it again; no Nigerian is above the law. He will surely be arrested.”

As at the time of filing this report several journalists remain in the vicinity of the offices of State Security Services office.
