The acting Director-General of the Department of State Services ( DSS), Matthew Seiyefa, said the service was reviewing all cases of alleged unlawful detentions and human rights abuses by the service.

The acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, appointed Matthew Seiyefa after sacking the former Director-General, Lawal Daura, for unauthorised deployment of operatives of the service to lay siege to the National Assembly complex.

Seiyefa, who disclosed this during his maiden interaction with journalists on Thursday in Abuja, said the service would remain focused and professional in protecting national interest.

On the continued detention of retired Col. Sambo Dasuki, former National Security Adviser, Seiyefa said it was early to make any definite decision as he was still studying cases before him.

He said that the service would collaborate with the media to project the activities of the service, adding that the appointment of a spokesman for the service was under active consideration.
