There is uncertainty over the fate of Gordon Obua, the Chief Security Officer to former President Goodluck Jonathan, who is being detained by the Department of State Service.
It was gathered on Monday that the health of Obua, who had been in custody since last Thursday at the DSS headquarters, Abuja, might have deteriorated.
The DSS operative had been battling with diabetics and hypertension, which might have worsened following his detention and inability to get proper medical care.
Obua’s condition could not be immediately ascertained, but security sources stated that the health of the former CSO had “taken a nosedive.”
The former CSO was taken into custody following investigations into how security vote at the Presidential Villa under his watch was spent.
It was gathered that Obua as CSO commanded a huge amount of money as security vote, which could not be accounted for.
The DSS has yet to publicly admit that the security operative is in detention or declare the reason for his arrest, fueling speculation that Obua was detained as part of a plot to embarrass the Jonathan administration.
The DSS could not be reached for comment, as it has yet to announce a new spokesperson, but Obua’s lawyer, Onochie Onwuegbuna, had earlier issued a statement in which he accused the DSS of denying his client his medications.
He also complained about the conditions under which he was being detained and demanded Obua’s unconditional release.
