Former President Goodluck Jonathan’s ex-aide Reno Omokri questioned the selection of the heads of three intelligence agencies in Nigeria. He also blamed the selection for the continuous herdsmen killings.
Furthermore, Omokri accused Buhari of tribalism in appointment, which results to creating an imbalance in intelligence agencies.
In a tweet that he posted, he said:
“There are 3 intelligence agencies in Nigeria, namely DSS, NIA & DIA. Each of them are headed by Northern Muslims. 2 out of the 3 are from the same Katsina state as President Buhari. 1 out of the 3 comes from the President’s hometown. Is there balance in our intelligence agencies? With no Christian or Southerner in the top intelligence strata, how can intelligence on issues like killer herdsmen not be biased in favour of those who share religion & ethnicity with the intelligence chiefs? Was Ayo Oke of the NIA set up to make way for a core Northern Muslim?”
