Ex-Chief Security Officer (CSO) to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Mr. Gordon Obuah, has dismissed speculations of his purported death in detention, saying “I am hale and hearty”.

Obuah, who spoke to journalists at the Abuja headquarters of the Department of State Services (DSS) said he was being held to account for his stewardship under Jonathan.

Allaying fears over possible ill treatment, Obuah maintained that he was still in the service of the DSS, which he described as a responsible organisation that will never cause him harm orb inflict pain on him.

Looking healthy in a beige coloured kaftan, the ex CSO used the opportunity to thank his family and members of the public for their concern over his wellbeing.

Obuah said it became necessary for him to personally clear the air on his purported ill health and rumoured death, saying the DSS has been according him the privileges deserving of a serving officer.

“Ladies and gentlemen, I came out this afternoon to dispel the rumour making rounds that I was dead. This morning, I was shocked at the report in some media that I was dead.

“This is me. I am hale and hearty. I was only invited six days ago by my employer to give account of my stewardship as the CSO to the former President Goodluck Jonathan. As you can see, I am alive, hale and healthy.

“Nigerians should be aware that the DSS is a serious organisation. As a Security Service, and more so the fact that I am still an employee of the DSS, I am constrained from divulging any more information until the right time.

“I want to seize this medium to thank all Nigerians for their concern and care towards me. I also want to inform them that I am alive, hale and healthy”.

Obuah was arrested on Thursday by operatives of the DSS and has since been in the custody of the agency.
