DSS Storm Kirikiri Prison Over Alleged Threats To Osinbajo’s Daughter



DSS Storm Kirikiri Prison

The Nigerian Department of State Services (DSS) has reportedly deployed more than a dozen operatives to Kirikiri Maximum Security Prison in Lagos in response to an alleged threat against one of the daughters of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.

According to sources, the DSS personnel arrived at the prison in the Apapa area on Sunday, March 12 and have been patrolling inside and outside the facility since then. The operatives are said to be searching for an individual who issued “a serious threat” against the Vice President’s daughter.

Vice President Osinbajo, who previously served as Commissioner of Justice in Lagos, has two daughters, Damilola and Kanyinsola, and a son, Fiyinfoluwa, with his wife Dolapo. It is unclear which of his daughters was the target of the alleged threat. However, sources indicate that the suspect is an inmate at the prison and used a mobile phone, which the DSS tracked to the location.

According to one source, “The officers believe the person they are looking for is in one of the cells or somewhere around the prison.” The presence of the DSS operatives at the prison has reportedly caused panic among inmates and staff.

Kirikiri Maximum Security Prison is one of the largest and oldest prisons in Nigeria, housing thousands of inmates. The prison has been plagued by overcrowding, poor conditions, and reports of abuse and mistreatment of prisoners. It is not clear whether the alleged threat against Vice President Osinbajo’s daughter is related to any of these issues.

Despite repeated attempts to contact the DSS for comment, there has been no official statement on the matter. DSS Public Relations Officer, Peter Afunanya, did not respond to requests for a reaction.
