Sacked CSO Abdurahman Mani may return as head of security detail

Reports say President Buhari has recalled his sacked Chief Security Officer (CSO), Abdurahman Mani, who was relieved of his position last week.

Nigerian Tribune reports that sources close to the seat of power said that Mani had been recalled to the Villa, though in another capacity as he would now take charge of affairs as head of Buhari’s security detail.

It was also gathered that Mani was yet to report in Ebonyi State where he was reassigned to.

It was revealed that some forces loyal to Buhari had made a case for Mani, who is believed to have been loyal and dedicated throughout the presidential campaign.

According to sources, some forces also moved to have the aide-de-camp, Lieutenant-Colonel M. L. Abubakar, replaced to serve as a balance of terror, but that it was resolved that another role could be found for Mani in the security network.

Mani was seen as having ruffled the feathers when, on June 26, he issued a memo to counter a June 24 memo by the ADC, which announced the removal of DSS operatives from at least 10 critical duty posts in the Villa, as well as close body protection of the president.

The memo indicated that operatives of the DSS should ignore the earlier memo by the ADC, which he claimed lacked adequate knowledge of the subject matter.
