September 8, 2010, has
long been expected.
Under him, the SSS became openly partisan, especially in the
run-up to the 2015 general elections.

safe, the agency busied itself more with harassing and arresting opposition
figures, ransacking firms and offices with ties to the All Progressives
Congress (APC) and appearing on television to disparage opposition politicians
and their party.
