    Usman Bugaje

    Dr Usman Bugaje, a strong critic of President Muhammadu Buhari was reportedly detained by the State Security Service (SSS) on Wednesday for eight hours.

    According to reports, Bugaje was invited by the SSS over a recent interview he granted African Independent Television (AIT).

    Bugaje who is a former national secretary of the defunct Action Congress had reportedly criticized President Buhari’s administration’s handling of insecurity in the country.

    A report by Premium Times said he reported at the SSS headquarters in Abuja at about 10 a.m. on Wednesday, based on invitation and remained there until about 7 p.m. after he was granted bail by the secret police.

    An associate of the former national secretary of the Action Congress told the publication that the secret service invited him two weeks ago after he featured twice on the AIT programmes in Abuja.

    The associate said; “Dr Bugaje had featured twice on an interview programme of the AIT two weeks ago. After his appearances on the television, he received an invitation from the SSS, asking him to report at its office to provide further clarifications on the comments he made on the programmes.

    “Today (Wednesday) at 10 a.m, he (Mr Bugaje) reported at the SSS in Abuja and he was detained.”

    Bugaje who is the convener of the Arewa Research and Development Project (ARDP) in 2016 had turned down the Buhari administration’s ambassadorial appointment offer.

    He had premised his rejection of the plum job on the desire to nurture a development blueprint for Northern Nigeria called, “Arewa Research and Development Project.”
