All over the world, states solemnly depend and make references to the reports of their intelligence agencies. That is to say, that these agencies or organizations as the case may be are soft guidance to the leadership of the country. If these agencies enjoy soft penetration and influence in the country’s socio-economic policies, it then means that they ought to be bodies of sound human quality composition and must undergo routine checks and overhauling to avoid national catastrophe. Although this assertion is for quantified and qualified states, not an aberration like Nigeria where the intelligence cycle takes intelligence reports from Aso Rock instead of the other way round. No wonder the so-called Department of State Services (DSS) is not much different from the defunct Western Germany's “stasi state police”.
Any intelligence agency like DSS that is devoid of independence and analysis will turn out to be a hitman of the Czar as we are seeing today in the contraption called Nigeria. Since the ascending to power of President Buhari and his first pet project of reshuffling DSS personnel, we have witnessed a “changed” number of massive DSS operatives filled with people from his clan which has metamorphosed to an agency devoid of sound reasoning and rather thrives on sentiments.
The sentiment that is driving the agency away from analysis has caused the “deplorable” state a lot of damages which will be outlined below;

— Despite our effort to itemise the damages in a chronological order, it is important to note that the rate of DSS’ induced headache to Nigeria is innumerable just as the sins of Satan cannot be quantified in number.
The first damage was the lies peddled by the agency and sold to President Buhari that if the IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu could be arrested and detained, that the Biafra restoration movement will cease. This fabricated lie was accepted in good fate by the Presidency, having piled up vexation against Nnamdi Kanu prior to the time of the disastrous advice and his clogging arrest.
Today, events has rightly proven that Nnamdi Kanu’s arrest has further brought the struggle to the “mainstream” as Prof. Charles Soludo postulated while reviewing a book written on Biafra.
Why would such agency drag Nigeria into such an irremediable cost that the President is battling with the shock of the advice the agency gave him? That is exactly what a country get when composing a disgraceful agency of the kind of DSS. That sentimental birthed counsel to Buhari which he embraced sentimentally has affected the three organs of the government and created a mother problem to Nigeria that must be treat with decorum and caution. All these at whose cause? Of course the overzealous DSS that lacks reasoning!

Today Aso-Rock is covertly admitting the arrest and incarceration of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu as a decision shipwreck, as it is obvious that the wise man from the East (Nnamdi Kanu) has buffeted and awestruck all the predictions of Aso-Rock and their stasi police (DSS).
—The second counsel was the idea that protesters should be “crushed” and regarded as mere “miscreants”. Former President Olusegun Obasanjo without hesitation used the word in the public domain as was given to him by DSS. The application of “crushing” counsel of DSS has ruined the struggling image of the animal kingdom before the comity of nations, and also has taken the course to “point of no return”.
Little did the DSS know that IPOB under Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is more organised and sophisticated than any movement one can think of. Today even the likes of Obasanjo are fully aware that Biafrans tutored under the Radio Biafra University (RBU) are exceptionally good, and that our Vice Chancellor (Mazi Nnamdi Kanu) forbids the Radio Biafra University to produce “half baked graduates” as Nigeria’s university products are known by Olusegun Obasanjo. Our actions and results have proven and is yet to prove more that we are far from being “miscreants” and we will never be!

The lazy and sentimental DSS failed to take a stratificational study of what IPOB is made up, and inculcate to the president on how best to engage with Biafrans. Rather they went ahead spreading falsehood that IPOB are just miscreants, having known that Biafrans are human capital-bounding, that they get whatever they want under the sun.
If Nigeria should have 5% of human capital of Biafrans under Nnamdi Kanu, unarguably the contraption would have over taken BRICS nations by now.
—The third deceit of DSS was the attempt to engage the Ohanaeze and some selfish South-East Governors to control the Biafrans. Well, these criminal elements in the so-called South-East saw an opportunity to make ends meet from the event and decided to get their own portion of the bazar. They lobbied DSS to sell out their ideas to President Buhari in return for 50/50 sharing of the proceeds.
The deal was sealed and signed, but to the chagrin of Buhari, these forbidden idiots don’t have or enjoy single digit of respect among Biafrans. No one cares to know if they exist! Having taken the monies and assuming what might befallen them in future, some of them are gradually coming in terms with the reality. The money making DSS knowing too well that Biafrans only have one leader in the person of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has chosen to keep lying to Buhari as to keep him funding the agency. Apart from Ohanaeze contractors, some formerly respected fellows were like Balaam tricked into the anti-Biafra game. The likes of Ejike Mbaka who called Biafra protesters “evil” is now gone down the mud. It is obvious to them that Biafra is not an Igbo cause rather the entire Eastern region cause.

—The downgrading of Biafrans campaign impact internationally is the worst damage and harm DSS have cost the Presidency. Either DSS hid Biafrans’ diplomatic breakthrough from Mr. President to save him of shock which the news will cause him or the intelligence attachés all over Nigeria mission abroad are naïve of events happening around them. Any of these can be true! But needless to hide such from him as many international bodies like Voice of America (VOA) and BBC are abandoning the comatose Nigeria and her pitiable government. We understand that the DSS is observing Henry Kissinger axiom of telling the president what he wants to hear, but the agency should know that huge anti-Biafra financial loss the Buhari regime is committed to will mean nothing as Biafrans are resolute to leave the contraption called Nigeria.
Those huge sums wasted from Facebook to Hillary Clinton’s electioneering period would have gone a long way in solving macroeconomic challenges facing the dying country. The DSS should as a matter of national urgency tell Mr. President what he needs to hear about Biafra and Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and not what Mr President wants or likes to hear. It amounts to foolishness that the President would commit such huge amount of money chasing illusionary project called one-Nigeria despite at the inflation of 18.3%. It is now obvious to Nigeria that the delay of the restoration of Biafra’s Sovereignty is dangerous as they have exhausted their tactics including the killing of Biafrans.
Long Live Biafra!
