DSS fighting corruption with corruption

Nigeria’s secret police, the Department of State Services (DSS) has been playing a very high profile role in President Muhammadu Buhari’s alleged war against corruption.

Their most notorious involvement was late night raids in October last year of the homes of several prominent judges on allegations of corruption.  The DSS claimed that billions of naira and foreign currency were recovered from the judges’ residences.

However, a DSS source has informed that the “standard operating procedure” in those raids is that if loads of cash is found in a home, the home owner is made an offer: Cut a deal with the DSS for them to keep half the cash or you go to jail.

The source claimed that most of the allegedly corrupt officials languishing in jail right now are those that refused to cut deals.
